The "Tachikawa Festival and Fireworks at Showa Memorial Park" was first held in 1954, and will be held for the 61st time this year. Approximately 5,000 fireworks are launched, including plenty of high-impact variants. These include 1.5-shakudama (45 cm) fireworks that explode into flowers of fire about 400 meters in diameter, and gorgeous star mines that cover the entire sky.
You can also enjoy a fireworks competition that can only be seen at this event. It features outstanding, artistic, and innovatively designed fireworks that have performed well in national competitions. Relax and have a leisurely time watching the fireworks on a spacious field in this sprawling park.
