It is no secret that the Japanese go crazy for fireworks in the summer, and Hokkaido is no exception! Today we would like to introduce a fireworks display that you definitely don’t want to miss out on, the ‘Lake Toyako Long Run Fireworks Display’.
Lake Toya was recently selected as one of the top 100 views in Japan; it is rich in nature and surrounded all around by magnificent mountains. It was also the location of the 2008 G8 Summit. From spring to autumn, fireworks are set off from the surface of a ship that floats around the lake every day for six whole months. It is fantastic to enjoy the fireworks while taking in the breathtaking views of the lake. Also, the location is not very crowded as the fireworks can be seen from anywhere around the lake and even from the Lake Toya hot springs!
Please enjoy the fireworks!
