Hikone/Northern Lake Biwa Fireworks Festival
Nearly 10,000 fireworks will light up Hikone's lake shore during this summer event. Enjoy the display at a distance, or with a cooling breeze by the lakeside. A night cruise beneath the fireworks is a romantic viewing spot, too, as the bursts of starmine fireworks reflect on the surface of the lake below like a painting. The finale comes in the last fifteen minutes of the show, with a display of starmine sure to take your breath away.
