Shakado River Fireworks Festival


Each year, 300,000 residents of Fukushima and beyond line the banks of the Shakado River in Sukagawa City for the prefectures’s largest fireworks festival. This won’t be happening for 2022 though. Instead, organizers are holding a “cheer up fireworks” event with fireworks being launched from 3 different places throughout the city for 15 minutes on the evening of August 20th.

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