Corporate Information

Greetings

My name is Tomoki Abe, president of Abe Industrial Fireworks. We are a manufacturer of fireworks, located in the Nanatani area of Kamo city, Niigata prefecture.

I’m the fourth-generation president of the company, which is over 100 years old. We produce, set off and sell firework shells from 2.5inch to 36inch, mainly large ones (8inch to 36inch).

Although Japanese round-shaped fireworks need a number of processes that require time and efforts to produce, we have always handcrafted them, one by one. There are a number of processes before fireworks are shown to audience: compounding powder, making shells with it and set them off. The whole processes need a lot of patience and care. Cherishing the skills and knowledge accumulated for a long time and showing deep gratitude to our ancestors and supporters, we will continue to create fireworks that are safe and touch the heart of the audience.
