Nagaoka Festival Grand Fireworks

One of the three great fireworks festivals of Japan, this is the main event that heralds the finale of the Nagaoka Festival. It was selected in 2016 as No.1 fireworks events, as chosen by noted fireworks experts. A must-see is a super-massive ball of fireworks, the "star mine," which is a congeries of five different-colored fireworks launched from five angles, and select Ju-go tama balls crafted by each fireworks veteran, with crowd-pleasing designs. A total of 20,000 fireworks are launched, and attendees number close to one million. The Nagaoka Festival itself was launched in 1946 as the Nagaoka Recovery Festival, a prayer for recovery after the August 1, 1945 air raids.

切り立った岩盤の上の神社

切り立った岩盤の上の神社現在は安全対策が徐々に取られているようだが、もともとの石段など、エレベーターがなかった頃は、相当危険な感じで、逆に迫力があり、ご利益が有るように感じられたのではないのかな...お参りすることじたいが、試練や修行のようなものだったように感じる。

Yamakoshi Alpaca Farm

Reviewed By DanL917 - Tokyo, JapanTokyo, Japan

Compact size, kinda hard to find

I decided to wait until I visited the biggest ilpaca (yubu) farm in Japan (in Nasu) before reviewing this place, since it's so small. Verdict: the one in Nasu was underwhelming, plus you pay an 800 yen admission fee, although that is really cheap for Nasu

Exotic Fantasy

I really like this place. The tunnels take you through an aquarium with sharks and rays. Another highlight are the otters (make sure to come late in the day, because otters are a lot less active throughout the day). Petting baby sharks and rays is amazing

お腹を空かせて行きたい

ツアーで行きました。お店は10軒位なのでサラッと見るだけならもうお終いの規模です。小規模なりに見比べら出来ていいなと思いました。目立ってたのはズワイガニでしたが、甘エビ、牡蠣やタコ、いか、鰈、お刺身等も購買意欲を誘います。新潟産が主でしたが、北海道や日本各地の旬の魚介も見られました。長崎産の小ぶりの生牡蠣を食べましたが美味しかったです。
