Ryukyu Fireworks Festival Movie


A great collaboration between “fireworks,” a traditional performance art that Japan takes pride in, and the “nature & culture” of Okinawa!

Ryukyu Hanabi Illusion Festiva 2017 is being celebrated for the 14th time this year under the theme of “the earliest place to vibrate with the summer in Japan.” This fusion between the Japanese summer tradition of fireworks and the music and culture of Okinawa results in a completely original entertainment experience that takes pride in being one of the largest Hanabi Illusions of Japan, and the largest in Okinawa. This show presents the original charm of Okinawa, besides being a marine resort, in a new way, and strives to improve the status of the prefecture and to attract tourists by using the “earliest summer of Japan” as a selling point both in and out of the prefecture. This festival, which can be enjoyed by both tourists from out of the prefecture and the locals, is held in April every year, coinciding with the formal start of the sea-bathing season.

“Design Fireworks” produced by JUNKO KOSHINO

JUNKO KOSHINO, the internationally recognized fashion designer, started producing firework designs in 2010.
Pyrotechnists have materialized her designs to draw them high above in the night sky. The contents of the designs are improved every year, and this will be the 6th time that this collaboration takes place.


Awesome entertainment with 21st century technology!

Our fireworks are all programed by costumed computer designed only for the firework setting off. This makes it possible to set off the fireworks along with the music. We will also use sequence control which can make our fireworks show more rhythmical, extremely precise, and dynamic!
