Kumano Fireworks Festival

7:10pm – 9:30pm
Free
Mie

Although there is some solid competition in this prefecture, this is oficially the biggest fireworks display in Mie with over 10,000 rockets forming some breath-taking displays. The event takes place on Shichirigahama Beach with the fireworks launched from the sea, meaning the chance of postponment is higher. The alternate dates are: August 18th, 22nd, 23rd, 29th and 30th (an almost concerning number to be honest).

To prevent the spread of COVID-19, many events have been canceled. Always check official sites before heading to an event.
