Takasaki Matsuri 2023 GAJET Meetup

August 26, 2023 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm


It’s time for some more summer festival fireworks! 🎆🎇🎆🎇

This year marks the 49th anniversary of the Takasaki Summer Festival, an event which includes dashi floats, portable shrines, giant daruma and fireworks.

Takasaki has one of the best fireworks shows in Gunma. Come join new and old JETs as we spend the evening gazing at 15,000 fireworks!

Fireworks start at 7:30 and end at 8:20 but feel free to join before the show to chat and relax!

By Wadabashi bridge, there is a massive soccer field where there is free viewing for the fireworks available. There may or may not be parking, as many others will be coming as well, so we suggest coming early by foot and train. Location is about a 20 minute walk from Takasaki Station.

Our GAJET team will secure a spot for us, so feel free to come earlier or closer to the time of the firework show.

There is no cost for this event, but we do appreciate any donations to GAJET so we can continue to make awesome events for you!

CAUTION: PLEASE TAKE YOUR TRASH WITH YOU. Do not leave it behind for GAJET or other kind souls to clean. There aren’t any trashcans (what a surprise) but there is a local Lawson not too far from the field where you can throw your trash later!

Can’t wait to see you there!
