Hello everyone! Some of you may know my wife Yoko and I are confirmed summer festival revelers, and this coming season promises to be a really busy one. Locals and tourists alike have more choices this summer. It’s good then, that the Kansai Fireworks Calendar 2018 is mostly decided; only three districts are left finalizing schedules.
The Kansai Fireworks Calendar 2018 in Detail
Without doubt, fireworks festivals in Japan are frequent and wonderful. Many students at my English school franchise have noted my 2018 summer festival calendar and the important highlights are presented here as well.
For starters, in July we have :
Sat 14 Echizen 13,000 . Sat 21 Ashiya 6,000 and Kyotango 3,000 . Wed 25 Tenjin Matsuri 5,000 . Fri 27 Nagahama 10,000 . Sat 28 Ayabe 4,000 . Sun 29 Maizuru 5,000 . Tenjin promises to be very crowded.
In addition, in August there are :
Wed 1 PL 100,000 and Obama 6,000 . Sat 4 Kobe Minato Hanabi 15,000 and the big Yodogawa 20,000. Also on the 4th is Oi-cho Wakasa 10,000 . Sun 5 Sumoto 5,000 and Hashimoto 8,000 . Tue 7 Otsu Biwako 10,000 . Sat 11 Kameoka 7,000 . Wed 15 Yoshino-gawa Gojo 4,000 . Thu 16 Miyazu 3,000 and Tsuruga 13,000 . Sat 18 Inagawa 4,000 . Sat 25 Itami 3,500 . Otsu Biwako and Yodogawa will be very busy so allow time.
In addition to all that, very big and beautiful in August is the Nara Tokae starting from Aug 4 and the candle festival ending on the 14th. Also, there is the Kyoto Daimonji festival, always on Aug 16th, not to be missed unless you are adverse to crowds.
Make sure to allow extra time and dress in light linens and cottons. Cover up as much as possible, bring plenty of drinking water and don’t drive. Enjoy the summer!
