Hi, is this a one night event or the fireworks lasted few nights? If we only manage to get to Nagano in early Dec, any more?

Wow, they are so colorful - and some of them look like palm trees made out of light. Great pictures!

Thanks, Anne! I was enjoying the fireworks from my friend's place quite close to the river, the angle was nice and there was no tall building that would get in the way.
