The season of fireworks will start soooooon!

Fire flowers they call them

Summer is the season of fireworks. In Japan, it is an absolutely orgiastic affair. Not to be missed.

To attend these fireworks, you need to prepare for extreme crowds, more or less disciplined, and to gear up with: drinks (if possible alcoholic one if you are more than 20 years old), a yukata (the coton version of the kimono), getta (the Japanese beach sandals), a fan, a camera and some friends.

This is the schedule for 2014 in Kanto area:
