Gion Kashiwazaki Festival Sea Fireworks Festivalぎおん柏崎まつり 海の大花火大会


This festival is one of the Echigo Big Three Fireworks Festivals, known as the Kashiwazaki of Sea, Nagaoka of River, and Katakai of Mountain festivals. Only at this preeminent Japan Sea fireworks festival can one hear the thundering successive explosions of 300 shakudamas and the bursting of 100 powerful shakudamas in rapid succession. Also very popular are the submerged aerial starmines displays, sponsored by local citizens and businesses, which are beautifully illuminated on the water surface. Around 15,000 fireworks are launched every year on July 26, despite what the day of the week may be.
