Overview
More
A fireworks display that is a popular tradition to decorate the summer nights of Lake Biwa. About 10,000 fireworks are launched from barges floating off the lakeshore in Otsu Harbor, Shiga Prefecture. There are a wide variety of places from which to view the display, from the paid viewing area where fireworks are launched right in front of your eyes, the free admission civic center area, the somewhat distant Biwako Hall area, or the Nionohama area where you can watch at your leisure. There are also group tours for viewing from Lake Biwa Boat Race stadium. There are many dining options in the surrounding area, so you can also enjoy a meal before and after viewing.
