Last weekend I went to 熊谷, the bigger town close to where I live, to watch the city’s 花火大会 from my friend’s roof.
Firework shows in Japan last very very long compared to anything I knew in France, over 2 hours. That’s because in between every 2 minutes sets they make a 3 minutes break. Why, you ask? My theory is that it’s all to encourage consumerism, so that you have time to get up and go buy a beer or some たこ焼き from the closest 屋台… What do you think?
