A Big Summer Event!

It's once again time for one of the largest fireworks shows in Kyushu, the Kagoshima Kinko Bay Summer Night Fireworks!

 

The Kagoshima Kinko Bay Summer Night Fireworks, a large-scale fireworks show with Kinko Bay and the active volcano Sakurajima set in the background, is in its 12th year.

Approximately 14,000 fireworks are launched in total, accompanied by music and including a string of 20 successive fireworks, a chain of large "peony" fireworks, two simultaneous fireworks each measuring 480 meters in diameter, and more. It's an exceptional display worthy of southern paradise Kagoshima.
