Fuji Rock Festival 2017

The biggest Japan’s summer music festival, Fuji Rock will return to Niigata’s Naeba in late July. Some big names, such as Björk, Gorillaz, and Lorde will headline the three-day festival, from July 28th to July 30th, with more than 200 other international and local artists, making it the largest outdoor music event in Japan. Fuji Rock Festival is named so because the first event in 1997 was held at the base of Mount Fuji. Since 1999, the festival has been moved to Niigata’s Naeba Ski Resort, where you will have the most fantastic and craziest summer.

Niigata Festival

The Niigata Festival is one of the biggest attraction in the region, and it's well earned! It goes for three days on the first weekend of August (August, 4-6 in 2017), and is one of the most impressive Japanese festival that I’ve seen.

Niigata Festival

As with many summer festivals, the highlight of the Niigata Festival is the fireworks in the evening over the river. On Friday night, there is one of Japan’s largest parades, with 15,000 participants dancing to the same beat in summer kimonos.
