2021 Akagawa's Fireworks : big changes
The 2021 edition of Akagawa's Fireworks Festival has been canceled to be replaced by an online event.
The 2021 edition of Akagawa's Fireworks has been canceled and replaced by a "countdown" version of the event separated into three stages, all broadcasted online on Akagawa Fireworks' Youtube channel.
