Christmas Hanabi Symphonia 2019

If you're looking to celebrate Christmas Eve with an explosion of colors and lights, look no further than Yokohama Hakkeijima Sea Paradise. It has already started to embrace the Yuletide mood with special attractions and its underwater residents are doing their part to keep holiday spirits high.

The party atmosphere will reach its peak on Dec. 24 with the Christmas Hanabi Symphonia, a 10-minute musical fireworks event starting at 7:30 p.m. You can take in the fireworks from a variety of vantage points, such as the amusement park's boardwalk area, observatory tower and restaurants Merengue and Yakiya.
