Date : 08/24/2019
400 fire-spewing cannons in an exhilarating demonstration!
The Toyokawa Tezutsu Festival (豊川手筒まつり Toyokawa Tezutsu Matsuri) was first held in 1988, as part of the commemorations for the city's 45 years as a municipality, being held in high esteem by the Toyokawa locals as one of the popular "Toyokawa Citizen's Festivals." Guilds representing the shrines of each of the city's districts, each with their own traditional techniques in fireworks cannon-making, all gather for a massive ceremony and festival where over 400 of those intimidating blasters are fired, making for an staggering and fulfilling experience.
