Fireworks 2021 at Shinrin Koen Hotel Heritage
Fireworks 2021. Last year, 2020, Hotel Heritage in Kumagaya was part of the Go To campaign. As part of the campaign they had a small firework displays on four different occasions. Furthermore, they were open to the general public, for a nominal fee. Moreover, they were the only scheduled fireworks in August 2020 in Saitama. (There was a “surprise fireworks” too).
In 2021, there is no Go-to campaign, but they are planning to have the fireworks display. Moreover, this year they will be on every day from August 7th to August 14th. Last year, they launched the fireworks from 8 pm, but this year they are planning to launch from 8.15 pm. Please note, they are only a small display lasting about ten minutes. But if you want to see fireworks this year, this is the place. At this moment in time, they are – once again – the only scheduled fireworks for August in Saitama.
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). Please note the fireworks will not go ahead if its raining.
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. 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.
