Festival season is August in Japan
August is festival time in Japan
Don your geta sandals and yukata and take to the streets, for the light show of a lifetime. Summer festival season in July- August is much anticipated in Japan and the accompanying fireworks displays are truly sensational. Hamamatsu and Lake Hamana are the venue for many such festivals in summertime and the sight of fireworks displays colouring the lake and sky are something to behold. Japanese fireworks are unique in that they are round so no matter what angle they are viewed from they look incredible, allowing many people to enjoy them at once. The on lake fireworks are set on floating pontoons in the middle of the lake, and remotely ignited, giving an incredible visual effect.
