Miyazu Tōrō Nagashi Fireworks


Held on in the beautiful Amanohashidate area, this event features lantern floating and fireworks for a magical evening in Shimazaki Park in Miyazu City near Kyoto.

What happens?

The festival has a 400-year history and was originally held to see off the spirits of the deceased, with fireworks being added in 1924. The traditional Miyazu dance is performed among the ceremonies and stalls so we highly recommend you arrive in time for the festival as well as the fireworks!

What happens?

The floating of thousands of Tōrō Nagashi lanterns takes place from 7:20 p.m. and the display of over 3,000 fireworks begins after that. There will then be a Bon Odori dance festival to finish off the night.

Organizers may cancel events, alter schedules, or change admission requirements without notice. Always check official sites before heading to an event.
