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.

It was announced in January 2020 that the Ageo fireworks were being cancelled on account of the Olympics. For safety reasons, they decided not to host the fireworks. When the Olympics were cancelled, the fireworks remained cancelled. There is a chance they will now be cancelled on account of the Olympics in 2021! However, in January 2020 when they announced the cancellation for 2020, they were planned for July 31st 2021. We won’t know until another few months whether or not the 2021 Ageo Fireworks will go ahead or be cancelled.

The next Ageo fireworks are currently scheduled for July 31st 2021.

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.

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.
