Earliest summer firework display held in Ginowan
April 12, 2015 Ryukyu Shimpo
Tens of thousands of fireworks lit up the skies over Ginowan on the evening of April 12. Despite persistent rain, spectators at the Ryukyu Kaien Festival were treated to a spectacular display synchronized to music. One of the fireworks was produced by highly acclaimed fashion designer, Junko Koshino.
With the catchphrase, “The earliest summer firework display in Japan,” the festival is held annually in April at Ginowan Seaside Park.
Urasoe resident Shogo Kinjo was one of those who enjoyed the event. “Even with the rain, I was overwhelmed by the fireworks and music,” he said.
