Hand-held Fireworks, called "TEZUTSU" in Japanese, is origined in Aichi prefecture. Summer festival is held in Toyokawa city every July, and it'll be July 19 & 20 this year. You can see hand-held fireworks and enjoy typical Japanese summer festival. Some stalls selling Japanese sweets, beers, drinks and fast foods like Yakisoba (stir-fried soba noodles) etc.

What to Expect

Hand-held fireworks, TEZUTSU, is so thrilling. A magnificent column of flames erupts from the bamboo stuffed with Iron powder and finally a flame called “hane” creates a large boom while erupting. Many local people gather for this summer festival. Kids love to go. They eat sweets or play some games.
It's about 5 minutes walk from JR Toyokawa station to the festival site.

“ Interesting visit with a very kind guide ”

Yumi was waiting right on time on the meeting point we planned. Then she took us in the designated areas of the city (2 for us in 4 hours). Very convenient for us that just arrived in the city. She was very kind and gave interesting comments on the places we visited. We had also interesting discussions on the Japenese way of life. I would recommend Yumi if you just arrive in Nagoya and want a guide to discover the place.


Thank you very much for such a nice review, Christophe. I am so happy to hear your family enjoyed Nagoya. Hope you didn't get too tired just after a long fright. It was very interesting for me to know about France and discuss on the difference between two countries. Thanks again for sharing a great time with me. Merci du fond du coeur!
