Kawagoe Fireworks | KAWAGOE
August 17 @ 18:30 - 20:00Free
Kawagoe Fireworks 2019 were on August 17th 2019.
The Kawagoe Fireworks alternate launch sites each year. They alternate between the embankment of the Iruma River in Aina Water Park and Isanuma Park. The Iruma river area in Aina Water Park is close to the Sayama City and Hidaka City borders. Isanuma River is relatively close to Nishi Ward in Saitama City.
Access Kawagoe Fireworks
For the Aina Water Park location the nearest stations are Kasahata and Matoba stations on the Kawagoe Line, but not the most convenient. Either the Sayama Shi or Shinsayama stations on the Seibu Shinjuku Line OR Tsurugashima Station on the Tobu Tojo line are more convenient has they have buses that go close to the viewing area. However, each bus stop is a 10 to 20 minute walk to the site.
There are four separate official car parks. One is free, the others are charged. The free one is on the Kawagoe – Ogose road near Oroshi Urishijo entrance, in the area of Kawagoe’s number 8 public forest. For the charged car parking they recommend you book in advance. Like the buses, the car parks are also a good distance from the launch site.
For the Isanuma park location you also need to get a bus to near to the site as there are no railway stations nearby. Isanuma park has a car park and in the industrial site beside it there are several areas you can park.
