Nagaoka Festival Grand Fireworks長岡まつり大花火大会


Nagaoka Festival Grand Fireworks is one of the top three fireworks festivals of Japan. This historic fireworks festival is held in memory of the deceased from the Nagaoka air raid, restoration and with prayers for peace. The festival kicks off with the memorial fireworks at the exact hour on August 1 when the Nagaoka air raid started and continues on August 2 and 3. The highlights of this spectacular festival include the successive three powerful shosanshakudama (35 inch shells), and the Phoenix rising with the prayers for restoration, which requires a launch site 1.7 kilometers wide, and the Komehyappyo fireworks with 100 powerful shakudamas launched successively.
