A fireworks festival worth of the long pyrotechnics history of Mikawa!

The vast expanse of Okazaki Park is home to the summer festival. Ranging from the "Yosakoi", there are "Gomangoku" dances and portable mikoshi shrines and so on giving a full-on experience of traditional Okazaki culture over the 5 days that this festival runs.

Okazaki Castle Summer Festival

In the middle of the festival, a grand fireworks display sees a wide range of fireworks launched into the sky. Star mines (a type of firework characterized by thunderous booming explosions), melody star mines (choreographed in perfect sync with the theme of the music), the so called "goldfish fireworks" which unfold and seem to swim through the sky, not to mention the silver waterfall and the blazing chariot amongst many others create a wonderful show.
Other attractions include dances, processions, shows and much more!
