One of Japan’s three most spectacular fireworks shows, Akita Prefecture’s Omagari Fireworks Festival has illuminated the skies of Tohoku for over a century. Each year, over 20,000 bursts of light and color ignite midair, painting a dazzling portrait of summertime in Japan.

The Omagari Fireworks Festival is not only a show, but also a heated competition between skilled pyrotechnicians from around the nation. The festival is a platform for these artisans to showcase the fruits of their labor, creating a spectacle unlike any other and continuing the legacy of Japan’s rich fireworks culture.
