Yamanakako Fireworks Festival Hokosai

Yamanakako Fireworks Festival Hokosai
The Yamanakako Fireworks Festival Hokosai is the very first of the fireworks shows that are held around the Five Fuji Lakes each year. Fireworks are set off from Yamanaka, Asahioka, and two more sites, so they can be enjoyed from any point along the lakeshore. Viewing the fireworks elegantly from a sightseeing boat on the lake is also popular. This fireworks festival traces its roots back to the Taisho period, when students would set off fireworks at the lake, and the firework event was later given the name "hokosai" by the distinguished writer Tokutomi Soho. Today, one purpose of the festival is to propitiate the souls of those who died in the line of duty and to offer up thanks to the lake.

The view was most spectacular and the fireworks lasted for a while where you could see many different kinds of Fireworks in the night sky.
It is a must to attend, especially if you are staying in Yamanashi Prefecture.

The experience is amazing with music that syncs the firing of the Fireworks additionally commmentary by an announcer (in Japanese) can be heard.
The event has an opening firework display and a closing of the event special firework display.

It would be advised to not park your car near the main road next to Lake Yamanakako as it gets very crowded and you may not be able to move until the fireworks are over.
Parking should be found a bit earlier if you plan to come to Lake Yamanakako by car.

Enjoy the view with your loved ones and friends on this special day!
