How to…

Hanabi 花火!
Its the season for firework festivals in Japan and I love this♡
Since I was little there is something special about getting out in the dark, bringing a blanket to sit on and all of a sudden the sky burst into different colours and shapes;)

In Tokyo I have been to Sumida River but in My city in Sweden we just had a festival also 😉

In Japan its traditional to wear a Yukata when going to a Hanabi.

Hotaru Matsuri

In 2012 Panasonic added 100.000 lanterns in Sumida River in Tokyo, where apparently a long time ago You could catch fireflies!

Such a beautiful event I think. Just near Tokyo Sky Tree!
