  • Why go on a fireworks trip?

    Japanese fireworks showcase techniques that distinguish them from those in other countries.

    The core of each firework expands from a single ball into a perfect circle with multiple layers, each layer changing colors beautifully before disappearing. This beauty is a testament to the skill of Japanese pyrotechnicians and the pride they take.

    Japan’s hanabi taikai culture involves people gathering to admire the beauty of the fireworks. This lasts for an hour or two. Most people have seen fireworks, but few know the techniques and mechanisms behind their beauty. Our goal is to share the true charm of Japanese fireworks and the culture, passed down through generations, with people around the world.

Experience the lifestyle and culture of a unique region
that can only be fully appreciated by visiting.

Experience the lifestyle and culture developed based on the local climate and environment. These connections are also reflected in the local cuisine, economy, and way of life.

  • Comment by John Daub

  • Seeing the Japanese countryside is very hard for many international tourists because trains and transportation are very limited, not a lot of information is available like in Tokyo or Kyoto. It's hard to know where to go with 47 prefectures available, so my goal is to open up new places to visitors that show the friendly rural side of Japan through events like fireworks, food and people. This is the Japan so many search for and I'm so happy to be able to introduce it to them with these bus tours.

    I feel like I got the authentic countryside experience. I moved to Japan to have such experiences and I feel really grateful. I enjoyed meeting the local people at the street food market, they were very friendly. I won't forget this trip :)

    I loved everything about this trip, right from the fireworks to the street food and koi farm. I loved meeting the local people and of course also my fellow only in japan travellers. I've lived in japan for a year and this is one of the best and most memorable trips so far.

    You could really feel the spirit and love put in by the locals. I felt very honored to be able to enjoy such a special event they worked so hard to prepare.

    It feels so authentic, everything. The food made by the okaasans, the craftsmanship of the fireworks, the atmosphere. Everything about the koi day was super unforgettable too.
