Mount Fuji Fireworks

The highest altitude fireworks event in Japan

Dec 18th
Venue: Grinpa Amusement Park, Susono, Shizuoka When: Saturday - Dec 18th 2021

Mount Fuji is one of Japan's most recognizable symbols, and a new event plans to celebrate its beauty with an annual winter fireworks festival. The Mount Fuji Fireworks will initially take place in Susono, Shizuoka Prefecture, with the event intended to visit other cities and towns in Shizuoka and Yamanashi in years to come.

Part of the event's purpose is to highlight the cultural importance of fireworks festivals in Japan, particularly in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic where large numbers of such festivals were cancelled. The event also claims to be the highest altitude fireworks festival in the country.

Ticket prices for the event have not yet been confirmed, but they will be posted on the official website closer to the date.

Getting there

The inaugural event takes place at the Grinpa Amusement Park. The venue is located 20 minutes from the Tomei Expressway's Susono IC, or around 30 minutes from the Tomei Expressway's Gotemba IC.

For those visiting via public transport, buses to the venue are available from JR Gotemba Station, Mishima Station, and Fuji Station.

I've seen a lot of posts about this event. I'm sure a lot of people will be attending it, since most of the summer fireworks were cancelled.

Nice PR and tie-in with Mt. Fuji. Fireworks are amazing in other countries as well, but Japan does them in a very special way all their own. This should be a great show!
