新川古代神の様子その1

This is the largest festival in Namerikawa, being held for two days in summer, which all the citizens in Namerikawa join.
On the first day, Namerikawa City's traditional arts "Niikawa Kodaijin" are performed by all the citizens. It is magnificent to see the scenery of "Niikawa Kodaijin Festival” dancing around the venue in the summer evening.
On the second evening, "Fireworks Display on the Sea" is held, where a lot of people from all around Japan come to take a look at the fireworks shooting up from the sea, including the largest size fireworks of 36 inches in diameter. The spectacularly large 36-inch shell firework was set off in Namerikawa city for the first time in Toyama in 1992. Since then, together with Marine Star Mine, the large firework puts on an extravagant finale of this festival.
