The Biggest Fireworks Competition
Omagari fireworks competition is Japan's largest fireworks display which is held yearly in Daisen city, Akita, started more than a hundred years ago.
Fireworks creators from around Japan make their works with their all efforts and skills to win the most honorable prize, the Prime Minister's award.
Through the event, some 20 thousand of fireworks are set off, enchanting 800 thousand of people visited Omagari to see the spectacle.
One of the most enjoyable parts of this event is a creative fireworks show. In this part, fireworks are not limited to a roundish shape--they make their works in any shape, including smile mark, bow, sunflower, and even anime characters like Doraemon with combination of three dimensional fireworks and many colors. The wide star mine is just beyond description.
In this tour, you can see beautiful fireworks in the special seat (sajikiseki) with your family or friends.
