Nagoya Port Fireworks Festival

7:30pm – 8:20pm
Free

Compared to other festivals around the country, with only 3,000 fireworks, the Nagoya Port Fireworks Festival seems relatively small. Despite this, the scenic location for the event and its proximity to Nagoya attract a spectator audience of approximately 370,000 people.

This festival usually takes place in mid-July, but in 2021 it was rescheduled for October to avoid a clash with the Olympics and in the hope that COVID-19 restrictions will be lifted, but was eventually cancelled anyway.

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