Akagawa Fireworks (赤川花火大会)

Event

The Akagawa Fireworks are held on the banks of the Akagawa River in the city of Tsuruoka in Yamagata Prefecture. Since this is billed as a national fireworks design competition, highly skilled pyrotechnics masters compete by launching a wide variety of their works. The major attraction of these displays is the spacious venue, 700 meters wide, along the banks of the Akagawa River, where competitors launch their fireworks one right after another, treating spectators to the awe-inspiring sight of a sky nearly covered with blazing displays of light.

          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.
