From mid-July to the end of September, fireworks festivals are held at various locations across Sapporo. “Hokkaido Makomanai Music Fireworks Festival”, among the largest of its kind in Hokkaido with a total of 22,000 fireworks, is held in Makomanai Park. “Doshin UHB Fireworks Festival” has a history of over half a century and is held near the Toyohira River Minami Bridge in central Sapporo. Started off in 2012, “Moerenuma Artistic Fireworks” features a combination of fireworks and music. The view of fireworks blossoming in the large expanse of the sky is stunning. The climate of Sapporo with its gentle night breeze is perfect for enjoying fireworks—a typical scene of summer in Japan. We invite you to enjoy the various fireworks festivals, each with its unique scenery and performance. “LIGHT UP NIPPON HOKKAIDO” is a fireworks show held at Takino Suzuran Park, funded by donations to help towards restoration efforts after the 2011 Tohoku Earthquake and Tsunami. In addition to the fireworks show, this unique combination event features candle art that uses 5,000 candles, and a music stage in this outdoors festival.
