Shimonoseki 花火 Hanabi (Flower Fire = Fireworks!)

A year ago Dan enjoyed his second day in Japan at Shimonoseki fireworks. Fireworks are a big summer festival favourite in Japan, known as flower fire.

A year on, now we were part of the group blocking off space with our massive tarpaulin, and we got to witness the beautiful show once again!

An hour long firework battle between Shimonoseki and Mojiko sees many many many fireworks including smiley faces and a mental boat that throws fireworks into the sea. Wonderful! The spirit of the festival is felt throughout the day, as people camp out, eat festival food, and be merry.
