The Biggest Hanabi of the year in Yamanashi
What is Hanabi?
Have you guys ever heard about Hanabi? So, hanabi is basically means fireworks. Many cultures use fireworks to celebrate a holiday or culturally use them as a traditional event.
In Japan, fireworks originally used to ward off evil spirits. They believed that the fireworks sound made evil spirits afraid.
As time goes by, people in Japan held this event to celebrate summer. Usually they will go with his/her lover, so don't be shock if you see so many couples wearing Yukata exist in Hanabi event. HAHA
But you can go with your family and friends to spends your summertime with happines and full stomach because you will find a lot of food stands, especially yakisoba (fried noodle) and takoyaki.
