The "Fire Festival"

The display of "Tezutsu" fireworks in "Hono no Mai" is the climax of the "Fire Festival". The "Tezutsu" fireworks are hand made, hand launched fireworks that send an amazing pillar of flame directly over the person who launches it. Hand launched fireworks of this scale (10m) can't be found anywhere else. Each "Tezutsu" firework is crafted and launched by a single person; a difficult and time consuming process. Besides the "Tezutsu" fireworks, you can enjoy various fireworks such as "Ohzutsu", "Randama", "Tsuna bi", "Hanataba" and "Star Mine". There will also be temporary shops and traditional "Wadaiko", or Japanese drums, at the stage, so the site is full of people and a lot of fun all day long.
