    The Edogawa Fireworks Festival is one of the most popular summer hanabi taikai (fireworks festivals) held in Japan.

    It is utterly spectacular to see large fireworks fired into the sky from a close distance on the bank of the Edo-gawa (Edo River).

    Highlights of the Edogawa Fireworks Festival 2018

    The 2018 festival will deliver an eight-part programme with as colourful themes and tunes as ever.

    The nocturnal show will, as always, open up with a spectacular firing of 1,000 fireworks in mere 5 seconds!

    This will be followed by Cherry Blossom Mount Fuji, with the particles of pyrotechnic light arranged in an image of Mount Fuji, with a shower of cherry blossom petals falling on to it. A must see!

    The show will then invite spectators to set out on a trip through jungle, full of exotic butterflies and flowers.

    The watchers will be taken back to Japan in the next section, in which dragon(s) will emerge from rough waters and fly in the sky

    Then the art will change into “Pastel Illusion”, succeeded by “Silver Serenade”.

    In the next section, rockets of coloured fire will move in the sky with lightning speed.

    And finally, a flamboyant grand finale will conclude the summer night’s dream with a shower of silver and golden lights, symbolizing a sacred torch to illuminate the future.
