In many places in Japan, in summer, fireworks festivals are held.
Fireworks 2013 – a set on Flickr. These were photos of Inagawa Fireworks Festival (in both riversides of Inagawa River, Ikeda city of Osaka pref and Kawanishi city of Hyogo pref, Japan), taken on Aug 17, 2013.
A fireworks festival is one of the most popular gathering opportunities. Authorized safe areas which are near a launch point are crowded with many couples dressed in “yukata”s, summer cotton kimonos. Many people go out to rooftops and pathways with a great view of fireworks and get together.
