Kibun Festival Fireworks紀文まつり花火大会


The eminent Edo period merchant Kinokuniya Bunzaemon, was born in the city of Arida in Wakayama Prefecture, and the famous fireworks of the Kibun Festival draw their appellation from an abbreviation of his name. About 2,000 fireworks are launched or set off on riggings on both sides of the Arida River, making for an impressive, must-see sight as they unfold like brightly colored fans over the water. The festival also features events such as a summer karaoke festival and taiko drum performances.

Wakayama Main Areas


Wakayama prefecture unites pilgrims, food lovers, and culture buffs in a tranquil corner of Japan at the base of the Kii Peninsula. The setting for many a Kumano Kodo pilgrimage trail, Wakayama invites those in search of spirituality from one side of the prefecture to the other, from the 100-plus Buddhist temples of the sacred Mount Koya in the west to the inspiring temples of the Kumano Sanzan set among breathtaking nature in the east. Once the grueling hike is complete, make a beeline for Wakayama city to savor some of the country's most delicious ramen noodles.
