Story & Recommendation
Enjoy beautifully colored Kyoto’s summer with 8,000 fireworks
Speaking of summer, firework is one of the very popular seasonal events in Japan. Firework festivals are taken place everywhere in Japan and various kinds of gorgeous fireworks beautifully illuminate the night sky. This event is held in Kameoka City in Kyoto, about 20 minutes away from Kyoto Station by train. It is a traditional event that has been taken place for a long time to pray for peace. Kameoka Peace Festival Hozugawa River Fireworks is popular for a specially selected type of the firework called “Tokusen-dama”, which is very rare to be seen. About 8,000 fireworks will be set off and more than 100 street stalls will offer many kinds of foods and entertainments. Kameoka City is located in the suburb area and is rich in nature. Arashiyama is also close and you may enjoy the cool weather while watching the fireworks as the venue is facing Hozugawa River. It is a good point that there are reserved seats in the park close to the venue, so we highly recommend that you purchase tickets for them if you would like to enjoy the fireworks without worrying about securing a seat before the event!
