The 50th Ohori Firework Display (Ohori Hanabi Taikai) is less than a month away! This is one of Fukuoka’s biggest displays, featuring 6,000 fireworks and an approximate attendance of 450,000 people (last year’s attendance). Fireworks are launched from the island located in the center of the giant pond in Ohori Park, and the colors reflecting off the water’s surface and loud explosions reverberating between the buildings make for a stunning spectacle. Wear your yukata if you want, and aim to arrive early if you want to secure a good spot. Enjoy the show!
