Kyushu Fireworks Festival九州花火大会

Event

The Saga Shimbun, Karatsu City, and its tourism association jointly hold this firework display annually for tourism promotion and regional revitalization. It has become a highly popular Karatsu summer tradition. About 6,000 fireworks are launched one after another from off the coast of Karatsu Bay, including 24 inch shells with 500-meter crowns, an impressive 500-meter Niagara cascade, and enormous floating fireworks that rise in a semicircle above the water, painting the summer night sky with Karatsu Castle in the background.

Away from the fast-paced cities of mainland Japan, Kyushu's Saga prefecture offers quaint towns and cities known for their traditional crafts, particularly ceramics. Rich in kaolin (a type of clay), Saga became the homeland of Arita ware, a delicate, decorative porcelain that is now celebrated worldwide and can be discovered in the towns of Arita, Imari, and Karatsu.
