Spectacular fireworks and the hustle and bustle of people make this summer festival come alive
Fireworks and festivals are indispensable to summer in Japan. The echo of drums, shouting voices and wonderful fireworks filling the night sky will become a lasting memory of Japan. In recent years, the entertainment at festivals has become more varied, including such things as parades and stage performances. As you walk taking in the sights and sounds you should take some time to sample some of the food you’ll see at the stalls.
