One of Saitama’s largest: Ageo Fireworks | AGEO
August 3 @ 19:00 - 21:30Free
Ageo fireworks are one of the 10 largest firework displays in Saitama. Approximately 10,000 fireworks will be launched, including “shakudama” 尺玉 which are the largest sized shells. There are starmines as well as fireworks with celebratory messages for birthdays, marriage and good results in tests. These fireworks attract about 160,000 spectators. There are about 50 festival stalls.
For 2019 they are tentatively scheduled (May 2019) for Saturday August 3rd. IF the weather is unsuitable that day they will most likely postpone them until August 10th.
Ageo Fireworks Access
The fireworks are launched near Riverside Phoenix Golf course, which is a 15 minute bus ride from JR Takasaki Line, Ageo Station (map in the grey details box at the very bottom of the post). Queries to Ageo Tourist Board at 048-775-5917. You can pay for a priority seat if you book in advance through the official website (in the grey details box below). Otherwise the fireworks are free to spectate from any of the public viewing areas.
Currently (May 2019) awaiting the 2019 flyer, this was the 2018 flyer:
You can also view the fireworks from Maruyama Park and Enomoto Farm. The farm usually closes at 5pm, but stays open until 9pm on the day of the fireworks. Parking is usually free at Enomoto Farm, but due to the increasing popularity as a place to view the fireworks there maybe changes this year.

We hope fans of the Rugby World Cup 2019 can sample a taste of what this beautiful country of Japan has to offer, while enjoying the games. We wish all teams and all supporters the very best, but…
