The 69th Ki-nyan-ne Ohito Summer Festival -- Wednesday, Aug. 1st, 2018

Pedestrian Paradise (vehicle-free time) begins at 14:00.
Fireworks display to be held from 19:45 until 20:30
.
Place ... Kano River, Ohito-bashi Bridge, downstream, riverbed
Access ... 5-minute Walk from Ohito Station, Sunzu Line, Izu-Hakone Railway
Shot Count ... Approx. 8,000 firework shots to be launched.

Stage Overview

As the experiment since last year, this event is to be executed under the concept of "all the fireworks are launched accompanied by the music which matches each firework".
This has been done since several years ago at Nirayama Kano-River Festival and Sengoku Fireworks Festival. However, at Ki-nyan-ne Ohito Summer Festival, the matching music had not been accompanied basically until two years ago except the "Digital Starmine" stage in the 2nd act.
Since the last year, the background musics are prepared in advance to match the contents of fireworks. Although not completely synchronized except the "Digital Starmin" stage, we hope you enjoy our Ki-nyan-ne Ohito Summer Festival which has been evolving gradually.

First Stage : Symphony of Light

The grandeur first stage begins slowly. As the music tempo speeds up, the fireworks become more colorful!
This is the opening stage with extra volume fully packed with various staging effects such as the effect of running through the whole venue.

Second Stage : Memories of Summer

In the second stage, where we would like you to watch the fireworks carefully, please enjoy the fireworks launched slowly on the flow of Karino River here at Ohito accompanied by the music that may remind you memories of summer vacations.
Gigantic "5-go-dama" (5th-grade shells) fireworks are to be launched at maximum, and new fireworks are to be debuted as well.

Third Stage : Digital Starmine

The highly popular fireworks show program in which the musics and fireworks are completely synchronized to 0.01 second by the computer control.

Forth Stage : Gold Rush

The scale of the never-ending gold rain is the number one in the Izu peninsula. The forth stage fully packed with surprises and thrills is the grand finale you can only experience here at Ohito. Don't miss it!
