Otsu ShigaHanabi TaikaiFireworks大津志賀花火大会


This fireworks display takes place at the gorgeous scenic area of the famous Omimaiko on Lake Biwa's western shore. It features about 2,000 fireworks, including elaborate starmines. Access from the neighboring station is good, and you can take in the fireworks from the lakeside relatively close to the launch site. It's crowded with spectators every year. With the fireworks bursting against the backdrop of the Hira Mountains, the spectacular view of the sandy beach and the reflection of the fireworks on the lake is definitely worth seeing.

          Shiga Main Areas


          Visitors to Shiga prefecture are almost always hopping east across the prefectural border from Kyoto, and they are almost certainly Lake Biwa-bound. Covering an area of 670 square kilometers, Lake Biwa makes up the bulk of Shiga prefecture, with beautiful lakeside paths that offer myriad walking and cycling opportunities, connecting a string of museums, shrines, and picturesque views that finally lead you to Hikone Castle on the eastern side of the lake.
