As you might know, Shizuoka is a land of fireworks. Locals love fireworks and we have a series of fireworks festivals here and there throughout the summer. One of them will take place annually at Nippondaira Hotel.
The “Nihondaira Festival” is set to dazzle audiences again this summer with about 10,000 shots of colorful fireworks on July 24, 2019.
What’s unique about this fireworks festival is you can enjoy fireworks going up right above you up front and the shapes, colors and impressive power of these fireworks attract huge crowds every year!
Considering the earlier sunset, the Nippondaira Hotel has a start time of 4:00 p.m. followed with fireworks at 7:30 p.m. making a green lawn garden open to public with some food and drink stalls for the event on the day.
You’ll truly have one of the best spots to enjoy the fireworks with the perfect background of nearby Mt. Fuji and Suruga Bay overlooking Shizuoka night city lights.
You are unable to come by car due to traffic regulations. Visitors are requested to use pay shuttle bus or taxi services.
