Major points of note

In terms of both the number of fireworks and the scale of the show, this is one of the greatest pyrotechnic shows in Japan. People throng to view this event, a dramatic show that includes the likes of the spectacular water Star Mine and the Niagara—a phenomenal firework extending two kilometers in width. With mountains surrounding Lake Suwa on all sides, the fireworks resound deeply and onlookers can even physically feel the reverberations, truly an amazing experience.
