Watching fireworks at Yachiyo Park

When mentioning Japan, it is impossible to omit the fireworks festival, but it is not just anywhere you can watch the fireworks up close and lit up beautifully. Today, let me introduce a park where you can watch the beautiful fireworks - Yachiyo Park.

The Fireworks festival, also known as the "Hanabi Masturi", has been held all over Japan since 1733. Fireworks in Japan are relatively small in size, and there are many varieties: starmine, warimono, han-warimono, kata-mono.

This time, the location I went to watch the fireworks was at 2413 Murakami, Yachiyo, Chiba.

Time: From 7:30 PM - 8:30 PM in July and August.

Please visit this website for more information.

While I had already seen the fireworks at the end of July, my younger brother had not seen them yet. But since he said he really liked fireworks, I took him to watch them as his wish.

It was already the end of August, and at this time, it was hard to find a place that had real fireworks. Luckily, I was surfing on Facebook and discovered this place, so I took him here. We arrived earlier than expected, so we went to McDonald's for a quick bite to eat and then headed to the park.

We followed the crowd and went to Yachiyo park. I don't know whether there was any other festival besides fireworks on that day, but there were many food stalls nearby. We went to the area with the small lake. It was very crowded with everyone sitting there, probably all waiting to watch the fireworks.

I arrived quite early, and the fireworks display didn't start until 7:30 PM, so I walked around to see if anything was interesting and discovered that this place had a lot of cherry blossom trees, so the spring here must be incredible.

At exactly 7:30 PM, I heard the sounds of fireworks nearby, and I saw people moving over there, so I followed them. After passing a riverbank, I finally reached the area near the sea where there were a lot of fireworks. It was so crowded with so many people there that it took me a while to get inside.

Usually, I only saw a few people wearing yukata during other fireworks festivals, but today I met many young people wearing yukata. I think wearing yukata is very beautiful, but it's a bit thinner than kimono, so it can only be worn in the summer, but not in the winter since it would be too cold.

I filmed many fireworks videos at this place, and it was more beautiful than the fireworks displays that I went to previously. The fireworks had many different colors, and it was dazzling. I tried to squeeze in to take photos with the fireworks, but I only managed to get closer by the end.

After watching the fireworks, we didn't go back right away but walked around there. Because just by looking at the crowds returning home, we felt a bit overwhelmed with how crowded it was. Later, I met some Vietnamese people, and they guided us to take a shortcut to get to the station faster without facing such a large crowd.

If you are already in Japan or will visit Japan in July or August, don't miss out on the fireworks festival. It is a beautiful scene, so come over, enjoy the summer atmosphere and its beauty!
