“Hanabi”:花火 Japanese Fireworks

“Hanabi Taikai”, Fireworks Festival, is a specail attraction of summer in Japan. It has a long history, the oldest one known, the Sumida River Festival, going back hundreds of years.
花火大会は日本の夏の風物詩。記録の残る最も古い隅田川花火大会は数百年さかのぼります。

 

From July to August hundreds of festivals are held throughout Japan. In large festivals, as many as 20 thousand fireworks are set off during the hour to hour and a half festival.
7月から8月にかけて日本中で何百もの花火大会が開かれます。大きなものでは、1時間から1時間半の大会中、二万発もの花火が打ち上げられます。

 

Fireworks are shot up one after another with huge blasting sounds, and a few seconds later turn in to beautiful flowers covering the sky. Actually, not only flower shape, but some look like huge golden willow trees with their branches overhanging in the sky. Some are uniquely shaped like UFO’s, hearts, or the faces of popular cartoon characters.
爆発音とともに打ちあがった花火は、数秒後、夜空を覆う美しい花に変わります。実際には、花だけでなく夜空に枝を揺らす大きな柳や、他は、UFOやハート型、アニメキャラクター等もあります。

 

If you have a chance to visit Japan in the summer, please take an opportunity to visit one of the festivals, to blow away the humid hot weather. But be sure to check out good viewing spots beforehand, as literally a milion crowd visits large festivals in cities like Tokyo or Osaka!
