Taking place on the banks of the Yoshino River in the Shinmachi neighbourhood of Gojo city, this is Nara Prefecture’s most popular fireworks festival.
Not content with a mere 4,000 exploding projectiles, the organisers have added a laser light show and music to the mix. The one hour show will finish with the launch of a spectacular “star mine” firework.
The festival typically attracts 80,000 people. The venue is a 10-minute walk due south from Gojo station. The festival starts at 2pm and the fireworks begin at 8pm.
