Celebrate Hanabi Taikai at Home With These Photos of Kansai’s Fireworks Displays

Some events have been postponed to a later date.


With the COVID-19 outbreak situation and the postponement of the Tokyo Olympic and Paralympic Games, the annual tradition of Hanabi Taikai or fireworks displays has recently announced cancellation and postponement for this year. 


We shared
the Hanabi Taikai schedule in Tokyo earlier. Now we are sharing the information about the events in the Kansai region that have been canceled, hoping maybe a virtual firework display in photos can suffice for now. Take note of any of the new schedules in case you’re interested in attending.
