Naniwa Yodogawa Fireworks Festival

7:40pm – 8:40pm
Free

The Naniwa Yodogawa Fireworks have been running for thirty-one years and take place on the banks of the Yodo River, offering fantastic views of the skyline beneath the display.

Originally a volunteer event, it is now one of the biggest in the area and has an impressive selection of regular and underwater fireworks. Needless to say, the crowds het pretty huge, so it is advised that you arrive well before 6pm as they say you won’t be able to reach the display area from the station in time after that.

For 2022, tickets are needed for the front-row seats. Prices start from ¥4,500 and more information is on their website (Japanese). Although some free viewing spots are still available, they are not encouraged.

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