A light and sound extravaganza in Ibaraki

Venue: Sakai Riverside Park When: Mid Sep 2024

Running for over three decades, the Tone River Fireworks Festival is a 90 minute extravaganza of light and sound in Ibaraki Prefecture. The 2022 event will include four of the country's top pyrotechnics companies (Yamazaki Fireworks Factory, Nomura Fireworks Industry, Beniya Aoki Fireworks Shop, and Margaux), who have won a variety of awards for their impressive fireworks displays.

An incredible 30,000 fireworks will be launched during the hour and a half long show.

For those who opt to drive, the venue is approximately 10 minutes from the Ken-O Expressway's Sakai Koga IC. Parking will be available at the venue for up to 500 vehicles, but do note that it is charged at ¥3000 for this event.

Hello, do we have to reserve a seat or not ? Thanks :)

It is a ticketed event, with the cheapest non-reserved seating priced at 5000 yen. In saying that, it's a fireworks event, so even if you're not right at the venue you'll probably be able to see it from the surrounding area. Ticket info can be found here:
