Azumino Fireworks Festival
Taking place on August 14th each year, the Azumino Fireworks Festival lays claim to being the third largest display in Nagano Prefecture. Set against the faint silhouette of the North Alps, around 12,000 fireworks burst and brighten the night sky.
While this is a popular festival attracting lots of visitors, it retains a local atmosphere with plenty of food stalls and a night market providing further entertainment and nourishment. The main display begins at 19:00, so if you want to secure a good place to sit make sure to come early and bring something to sit on.
Alternatively, reserved seating is available but must be booked in advance with prices ranging from JPY2000 to JPY10,000 (depending on the option you choose). Tickets are available through convenience stores or another option is to join a tour.
Our 1-Day Azumino Fireworks Festival & Snow Monkeys Tour includes a reserved ‘Manpuku Seat’ at the festival – a great way to take the hassle-out of getting there, so you can enjoy the show!
