Yamagata Fireworks山形大花火大会


Centered around a different theme every year, the Yamagata Fireworks are the largest in the prefecture, with 20,000 fireworks launched. A dazzling series of starmines, waterfalls, and other displays create a riot of color in the nighttime sky. Paid seating options come in distinct varieties, including the super special balcony seats, where people can take off their shoes, relax, and enjoy the show; the family seats, which come with tickets that can be used to buy things at the booths, and the super couple seats, cozy seats for two. The ability to choose the type of seating you want is a special feature of this fireworks display.

          Yamagata Main Areas


          Although often overlooked, Yamagata prefecture by no means lacks appeal: the Yamadera temple trail through the mountains, deliciously tender Yonezawa wagyu, and over 100 steaming hot springs, most notably Zao Onsen, await visitors. When winter comes, the snowcapped peaks become dotted with skiers by day and onsen-goers by night, while summer brings the celebration of juicy Yamagata cherries.
