Fireworks are an iconic visual of region-wide celebration. Depending on where you’re at, they can be associated with New Year’s Eve parties, the Lunar New Year festivities, and patriotic holidays.
In Japan, they tend to be most strongly linked with warm-weather firework festivals (花火大会, hanabi-taikai). These events are a great time for folks to wear their yukata, enjoy delicious street food, and watch the colorful explosions.
