Nakatsu Shimin Fireworks Show (中津市民花火大会)
This fireworks show is held on the first day of the Nakatsu Gion-an Oita Prefecture Designated Intangible Folk Cultural Property-a ceremony with a nearly 570-year history. 4,500 rounds of special effect fireworks and other varieties light up the night sky with fresh colors that announce the start of the festival. Once the fireworks finish, six Gion floats are brought into the precincts of Kuranashihama Shrine one at a time as part of the dauntless ceremony, much to the joy of spectators.

A trip to Oita is tantamount to a long soak in the Beppu baths. The mountainous, coastal prefecture of Oita is renowned for having more onsen than any other prefecture in Japan, most of which lie in the city of Beppu on the west coast of Kyushu, recognizable by its pungent sulphuric aroma and the clouds of steam that puff up across the hillside. Away from the Beppu hot springs await mountains, waterfalls, and temples, so don't hesitate to explore Oita a little further.
