– “Mt. Fuji” with the sunset glow x Japanese spring’s symbol “cherry blossoms” x the world’s high-class “fireworks”
Against the background of not only Mt. Fuji with snow in the evening, but also cherry blossoms which symbolize spring in Japan, representative pyrotechnicians of Japan decorate the sky with fireworks using their own traditions and professional skills. This year, the committee brings the beauty of sacred Mt. Fuji and unparalleled scenery by Japanese master craftsmanship. In Japan, there are four famous fireworks companies known as the “BIG 4” (Beniya Aoki Fireworks, Isogai Fireworks, Saiki Fireworks, and Kikuya Obata Fireworks), which all have over 100 years of history. Visitors can watch various kinds of gorgeous fireworks.
– Experience fireworks performance with five senses
In this event, visitors can watch the incredible scenery (Mt. Fuji, cherry blossoms, snow and fireworks) with their “eyes,” listen to echo sounds of fireworks in Mt. Fuji with their “ears,” feel the “smell” of fireworks with their “nose,” which only visitors can enjoy at the event, perceive the vibration of fireworks with their “body,” and also “taste” world-famous Japanese foods.

Normally, this special event space seats over 10,000 people. However, for this event it is limited to up to around 2,000 people, so that visitors can spend luxurious time. Also, the committee serves “sushi,” “tempura,” “takoyaki” and “yakitori” which are popular Japanese foods (for VIP seats, VIP cameramen’s seats, and premium seats only). In addition, a tuna-cutting show will be held for the first time in front of VIP seats. Visitors in the VIP seats will be provided with sushi topped with tuna fresh from the show.
