Oishida Matsuri Mogami River Fireworks (大石田まつり最上川花火大会)

Event

This festival was first held in 1930 to celebrate the completion of a large bridge on the Mogami River. Thousands of toro paper lanterns are set afloat on the river as 3,000 fireworks, most of them large, are launched aloft. The main attraction of the festival is a firework, the largest example of such in Japan. It is a 24 inch shell that produces ten consecutive bursts and produces a spectacular flower 450 meters in diameter. Since the viewing area and the launching area are close together, spectators can experience the sensation of having the fireworks explode directly overhead.

          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.
