Kitanippon Shimbun Toyama Summer Fireworks Festival

3,000 fireworks colour the night sky with hopes for peace

  • Ball of fire lights up the Toyama night sky

Taking place near the Arisawa Bridge on the Jinzu River, this is the largest fireworks display in Toyama Prefecture. It attracts many families and couples, as about 3,000 multicoloured flowers of bright light unfurl in the sky. Now held on August 1st each year, this summer evening fireworks display first started 2 years after the 1945 bombing of Toyama as a prayer for the repose of the victims’ souls, for peace and for the reconstruction of Japan. Please enjoy this one-night son et lumière show while still praying for peace.

  • You will be amazed at the brightness of the colours
