Watch as over 10,000 fireworks are launched over Lake Biwa, along with crowds of over 350,000. The display features fireworks and water jets to create an unusual display and the reflections in the lake are a whole extra layer of beauty. There are paid seats available online or from conbini store machines, as well as plenty of free vantage points. The events will be postponed to the 10th in case of bad weather.
