Event

These fireworks are meant for praying for continual world peace and for the souls of those lost during wars and disasters. It features a wide variety of fireworks, from prize-winning shells and newly-created fireworks made by the Japan Fireworks Artists Association, to the oversized starmines, during the finale, which beautifully color the nighttime sky. Kameoka City does not have many tall buildings, making it perfect for enjoying a wide panoramic view of the fireworks. There are foldable chairs available for rent (1,000 yen), affordably priced so you can relax and enjoy the fireworks.

Kyoto Main Areas

Its wooden tea houses, shuffling geisha, and spiritual sights have seen Kyoto hailed as the heart of traditional Japan, a world apart from ultramodern Tokyo. Despite being the Japanese capital for over a century, Kyoto escaped destruction during World War II, leaving behind a fascinating history which can be felt at every turn, from the fully gold-plated Kinkakuji Temple down to traditional customs such as geisha performances and tea ceremonies, which are still practiced to this day.
