Fireworks 2020! The only fireworks in Saitama this August?

August 13, 2020 @ 20:00 - August 15, 2020 @ 20:30

Fireworks 2020

Fireworks 2020 at the Shinrin Koen Hotel Heritage (Kumagaya). Hotel Heritage in Kumagaya is part of the Go To campaign. And as part of the campaign they are having a few small firework displays this August. However, they are also opening the fireworks to the general public at a small price. For 500 yen per person you can watch the fireworks from a viewing deck by the hotel’s golf course. (Guests of the hotel are not charged). It is only a small display with about 80 fireworks launched, but it may well be the only fireworks display in Saitama this August.

The firework displays are on August 8th, 13th, 14th and 15th. They also have a very small fireworks display on August 1st and the 22nd when they will launch fireworks consecutively including a starmine firework, but just for five or six minutes. They will not go ahead in the event of rain.

The address of this hotel is in Kumagaya, but it is called the Shinrin Koen Heritage Resort. It is right on the border of Namegawa and close to the excellent Shinrin Park, which incidentally is opening especially at 7 am the day after the first fireworks (so Sunday August 2nd) as part of their summer program. It will open from 7 am again for a few days over Obon. If you are visiting the park, be sure to check out the summer flowers.

Trivia: The Emperor and Empress and other members of the Imperial family have stayed at this branch of the Heritage Resorts.


Hotel Buses go from Shinrin Koen Station and Kumagaya Station during the day, but unfortunately at night it is quite hard to get to the hotel by public transport. Guests can reserve a bus, but they don’t have the same service for day trippers coming to see the fireworks.

By car the hotel is about 20 minutes from the Higashimatsuyama Interchange of the Kanetsu Expressway. Head North on route 250 and keep left for route 47. Parking costs 500 yen per car.
