Plan description

The best view, minus the crowds!

✔ View the fireworks action up-close from a local boat on the water
✔ Local 'Obento' style picnic dinner and local sake included
✔ Avoid fighting the crowds on the shore for the best view!

Every year on the third Sunday of July, the summer sky lights up with hundreds of fireworks over the port city of Shiogama. The event marks the evening before the annual ‘Minato Matsuri’ festival of Shiogama Shrine, one of the ‘Three Great Boat Festivals’ of Japan.

Thousands of locals and visitors from around Japan will gather to watch the exciting fireworks display and enjoy some local food and sake! Whilst the atmosphere on the shore is certainly buzzy and exciting, by far the best view of the fireworks in from the water!

On this tour you’ll have a chance to experience the best of both worlds!
After exploring the festival action on the shore you’ll head to nearby Shichigahama where a local boat will be waiting to take you and your friends out on the water.
Along with the incredible view, enjoy the taste of the region with a local ‘obento’ style picnic dinner washed down with some local Japanese sake!

Experience summer festival season like the locals!
