Sparkling Summer Memories
This photo is blurry, I know. But fireworks are such a big part of summer in Japan, I wanted to post it anyway!
You really can't start or finish summer without fireworks. And although going to a fireworks festival is also a fun event, there's nothing like a night of sparklers with family and friends in your back yard or the local park.
All you need is a candle and a bin of water to put the sparklers in after you finish.
There are many types of sparklers but you can enjoy the sudden brightness of the crackling fireworks, the smell of smoke (which keep the mosquitos away), and the fun memories you make with any one you light up!
