01. Introduction

The Okinawa fireworks illusion has been held for 18 years since 2004.At the event, we enjoy the production of fireworks, music, and fireworks.

With the support of Japan Airlines Co., Ltd. and Japan Transocean Air Co., Ltd. from the first event, It has been operated with the sponsorship of a company in Okinawa Prefecture and the entrance fee income of visitors.

Currently, due to the influence of COVID-19, the number of tourists visiting Okinawa Prefecture has decreased, and as a result, Many companies are in a difficult situation.

Also, due to that, the number of sponsors of the Okinawa fireworks illusion has decreased. It is expected that the entrance fee income of visitors from overseas will decrease.

We are not the only ones in a difficult situation. The difficult situation continues for the tourism industry in Okinawa Prefecture and for many companies that have spread from the tourism industry.

Furthermore, as fireworks festivals have been canceled in various parts of Japan, the fireworks companies that produce and carry out fireworks are in a difficult situation.

That's why now.

May we celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Ryukyu Sea Okinawa fireworks illusion with those who love the Okinawa fireworks illusion.

I hope that the tourism industry, food service industry, and fireworks companies that work hard will lead to the future.

Everyone wants to launch fireworks in the night sky of Okinawa.
