fireworks, Japan, kobe, summer

Kobe fireworks 2014

It’s been a long time since i updated this blog. Been very busy recently, and plus i kinda very actively engage in tumblr. Anyway, in Japan summer means fireworks everywhere, yes you won’t even get fireworks during new year celebration in Japan which is weird for me because every part of the world has fireworks for new year eve.

Every perfecture in Japan has their annually fireworks show during summer, I’m a regular attendance for the biggest fireworks show in Kansai area which is held in yodogawa Osaka every summer. But this year i want to experience other show in other city too. My first was Kobe fireworks show, which was held in kobe harborland near kobe port. The crowds wasn’t big because i still can find a place even though i came very late like 6PM. That Things that doesn’t happen everytime i come to yodogawa festival.
Finding food is very difficult, actually my plan was to ate dinner at the seafood restaurant while enjoying the fireworks. But they blocked all access to the mosaic mall, so i ended up eating 300¥ karaage from the food stall.
The fireworks show began at 19.30 and ran for 1 hour. Well they started very dull with small fireworks and some with difference shape which i couldn’t recognize. It ididn’t get bigger as the show goes on, though there are some big blast in the sky. One of the funny thing i experienced was the japanese girls screaming ‘matte, matte'( means wait in english) because they hadn’t prepared their camera but the fireworks already explode, LOL!. Usually you would hear them say ‘ sugoii’ ‘ kireii’ .
I took picture but the quality wasn’t good since i only depends on my iphone 4S and my ipad 4th G. I have something better to share the video of the fireworks show.
