The Nagaoka Fireworks Conference, held in Nagaoka City, Niigata Prefecture, in the northeastern part of Japan, is held from August 2nd to 3rd every year. It is called one of the three largest fireworks conferences in Japan.
The population of Nagaoka City is about 270,000 people. During the two-day period, the number of visitors will exceed three times that of one million people to watch the fireworks display. One of the climaxes is the revival of the pledge of the fireworks "Phoenix" and the waterfall fireworks. The fireworks cover up for half a day and the scene is spectacular!
