    This year (2019) one of the biggest fireworks shows in Japan became a bit more accessible.  Nagaoka is one of Japan’s top three fireworks displays (along with Omagari in Akita, and Tsuchiura in Ibaraki) but has been hard for disabled visitors to see as there weren’t any designated accessible seats available.

    Previous years, accessible seating was only available to residents of Nagaoka City, but this year they added a new wheelchair area.

    There was room for a wheelchair user and two companions.

    An accessible toilet was also available nearby.

    Unfortunately, when booking tickets you need a Japanese disability ID… not helpful for foreign visitors!  If interested in attending, you may want to connect the organizers well in advance.  https://nagaokamatsuri.com/contact/
