Kishiwada Minato Matsuri 岸和田港祭
The bay of a thousand and one lights
At the end of July, Osaka Harbor welcomes one of the largest firework displays in the city. Kishiwada Bay lights up with stardust.
If you are lucky enough to spend the summer in Osaka, you will almost certainly spend your most beautiful evenings looking at the sky. Particularly on the fourth Saturday of July when the festival of Kishiwada Harbor takes place.
Every year this suburb of Osaka programs a huge firework display from the port complex. Almost 1500 rockets explode in the sky to the delight of residents of the bay. The show takes the whole field of view with fireworks that illuminate for miles around. More than two hundred and fifty fireworks continues for ten minutes. And to close, a final bouquet created by the best pyrotechnists in the country to make you think its sunrise.
July in Osaka could also be dedicated to firework professionals. Indeed, these men, who master the powder, animate the city during major events such as Tenjin Matsuri .
