■Let’s watch fireworks with yakiimo in hand!
1. “Kobe Imoya Shinomoto”, the winner of the 3rd National Yakiimo Grand Prix, is now available
Kobe Imoya is the most famous roasted sweet potato expert in Japan, having won three national Yakiimo Grand Prix competitions.
We will be inviting “Shinomoto” to this event as the “Yakiimo” champion. On the day of the event, we will provide the highest quality roasted sweet potatoes, each roasted for over two hours, to VIP guests in the Crystal Room. In addition, limited quantities will be sold to general visitors at a special corner. The amount of roasted sweet potatoes that can be baked per day is limited, so they are bound to sell out. Please enjoy the ultimate baked sweet potato.
2. “Sweet Potato Expo” official shop “Sweet Potato Expo 365” opens “Sweet Potato Expo” is an event that brings together the best “sweet potato stores” from all over the country.
Its official shop “Sweet Potato Haku 365” carries a wide variety of sweet potato-related products, including products that are only sold at each store and baked potatoes that won the National Yakiimo Grand Prix, which competes for the “taste” of baked sweet potatoes. The official shop of Sweet Potato Expo opened as a physical store in September 2023 in response to the voices of sweet potato fans who can’t buy it even if they want to buy it at the event. That is “Sweet Potato Expo 365”.
■Shizuoka Blue Revs appears
Shizuoka Blue Revs is a professional rugby club representing Shizuoka Prefecture whose predecessor was Yamaha Motor Jubilo.
Together with our fans, local communities, and partners, we are challenging the world’s best not only in play but in all areas related to rugby.

At Shizuoka Blue Revs games, there are many events that you can enjoy not only watching the game, but also before the game. Please take this opportunity to watch the Shizuoka Blue Revs game!

About “Mt. Fuji Fireworks vs. Speedway 2024”
“Mt. Fuji Fireworks vs. Speedway
2024 is a large-scale fireworks event in collaboration with Fuji Motorsports Forest, a complex area that provides various mobility experiences centered around Fuji Speedway. The world’s highest peak fireworks, which are set off in front of Mt. Fuji, and the
“competition” between fireworks and motorsports that takes place at the international circuit “Fuji Speedway” are truly a “only here” worthy of the word “vs.” It will be an experience. We will provide you with a special time during spring break, with Mt. Fuji in spring, where the snow on the mountain peak stands out, and the breath of cherry blossoms heralding the arrival of spring.

One of the attractions of this event is the scale of the fireworks, with approximately 8,000 fireworks being launched from a vast site approximately 1.5km wide, one of the largest in Japan. The distance between the fireworks and the audience seats is close, and the fireworks are set off in full view, allowing you to experience the sensation of being surrounded by fireworks, along with the sound and smell of fireworks. The large fireworks, which are up to 1 shaku in size, are an impressive sight that cannot be experienced in the city center.
As last year, the fireworks will be produced and launched by Ikebun, a fireworks company that Shizuoka Prefecture is proud of, Nomura Fireworks Industry, Japan’s top company that has won the Prime Minister’s Award 21 times in domestic fireworks competitions, and Gion Kashiwazaki Matsuri Umi no Dai. Katakai Fireworks Industry gathers for the fireworks display and Katagai Festival. We also have exciting features unique to a fireworks and motorsports competition, such as a parade run featuring rare supercars and fireworks set off alongside cars.
Additionally, this event was sponsored by the Shizuoka Prefectural Office and was certified as an event commemorating the 10th
anniversary of Mt. Fuji’s registration as a World Cultural Heritage Site.
