I went to a few firework festivals this summer, and my favourite one was of course the one where I could combine the awesome fireworks and my favourite singer! Takizawa Hideaki was one of the entertainers during the Jingu Gaien hanabi on the 10th of August. Here’s a review of that evening!
Hanabi, Matsuri and the Movies
Okay, most things about Japan are wonderful and exciting right now, but some of the best things now during summer has to be all the hanabis and matsuris! I’ve been to several already and just have to share!
Tanabata Matsuri and Shopping in Nihonbashi
Today (or yesterday, July 7th) it was Tanabata Matsuri (七夕祭り) here in Japan, which can be translated as “the star festival”, och on the Friday we students of Akamonkai got the chance to celebrate the festivals like the Japanse do – by writing wishes on pieces of paper, which are then used to decorate bamboo trees.
