When we think of the hot summer nights in Japan, most of us are reminded of “Hanabi (Fireworks) because it is one of the ways to cool off a muggy night. Fireworks displayed in local districts have become the custom scenery for the summer in Japan.

Enjoying Toy Fireworks in the backyard is one of the great pleasures for children in summer holidays. On the other hand, set fireworks enka Hanabi” displayed by the qualified pyrotechnist “Hanabishi” are one of the great amusements for many people .

Japanese Fireworks Enka Hanabi are all hand made and globular, when shot off it bursts out into a fabulous circle with various sparkling colours. Sometimes a big firework itself called “Shaku Dama” is about 30p in diameter in which the spectacular scenery overwhelms the crowds when shot off . The sight of blooming and disappearing into the night is symbolized as a purified and transience feeling as is with the Cherry Blossoms.

Recently there are very few of us who wears Yukata (Summer Kimono) tied with an Obi a broad sash) and holding a Uchiwa (a paper fan) while watching the event, but it makes us Japanese feel the tasteful elegance in ourselves.
