Metsa Village Fireworks Festival

Fireworks on Miyazawa Lake in Metsa Village

Oct 17th
Oct 24th
Venue: Metsa Village When: Oct 17th - Oct 24th 2020, 7:30pm - 8:10pm

Several fireworks were cancelled in Saitama this year on account of the Coronavirus. But lucky for us, Metsa Village will have three firework displays in the Autumn of 2020. Please note tickets need to be bought in advance, which can be done on the official website. Tickets cost 1000 yen but in return you will get 1000 yen of vouchers for Metsa Village on the night. They are also giving out a Moomin exclusive picnic sheet to attendees. No other picnic sheets are allowed at this event.

The fireworks are being held on Miyazawa lake in Metsa Village, Hanno, Saitama. At the moment the village also has a "Harvest" event with a balloon sky of sorts. The fireworks start from 7.30 pm and finish around 8.10 pm. One thousand fireworks will be launched on the night of Saturday October 17th, Saturday October 24th, and Saturday November 7th.

Getting there

By car: Metsa Village is about 10 minutes from the Sayama Hidaka Interchange of the Ken-o expressway.

By public transport: A bus goes from Seibu Ikebukuro Line’s Hanno Station. It takes about 13 minutes and costs 200 yen. There is normally a bus from JR Hachiko Line’s Higashi Hanno station, however that bus has been temporarily suspended. On foot it takes about 35 minutes to the park from both those stations.

Lynda has been in Japan for 20 years and blogging about Saitama on her personal blog for 14 of them.  Despite its central location, just North of Tokyo, Saitama is still quite unknown to the international tourist, but frequented by domestic travelers. It is a great place to experience some off-the-international-tourist-trail locations and meet with locals and national tourists. I hope to introduce a taste of what there is to do and see in my articles on Japan Travel and help you with your Saitama travel planning.  Be sure to stop by my website where you will find 600 things to do in Saitama and 400 active events!
