Fireworks!!

Tonight is the annual Chikugo River Fireworks show, the biggest display in western Japan.  Are you going to watch it?

I have gone a few times in the past, it was definitely a fun experience, but just sooooo hot!

I have always wondered why fireworks are always in the summer in Japan.  I guess coming from Hawaii, we associated fireworks with more of a New Year’s Day tradition than a summer one.

I wonder why Japan doesn’t do these events in the fall or spring when it is a bit cooler and more comfortable to watch.  Oh well.  I do enjoy the food stands at the festivals so I can’t really complain!
