A city-wide festival of dancing, crowned by a staggering finale of fireworks!

The Toyota Oiden Matsuri Festival may be the largest event of the city, and the protagonists are the citizens dancing themselves!

Everybody giving it their all, dancing to the rhythm of the Oiden tune!

At preliminary events held in each district months before the great final, teams of families, company colleagues and neighborhood friends gather to practice their dance performances in preparation for the long awaited finale held in the central area of the city. The dancing styles are not all traditional - many new and attractive dances have been incorporated, especially by the younger generation. To the untrained eye these might even seem a bit kitschy, but don't be fooled: this is an example of the ever-evolving cultural trends of Japan.

One of the largest fireworks shows on Earth!

The following day after the dance competition is the great fireworks show, featuring over 13,000 airborne shells, countless near-ground firings, traditional hand-held cannon Tezutsu fireworks, and a colossal "Niagara Falls" curtain of fireworks over 500 meters wide! Precisely coordinated to inspiring music, the show is a jaw-dropping spectacle of monumental explosions of light and color that all visitors must see while in Aichi!
