Off Into The Sunset

Just Something To Do


On Saturday, the hottest day of the year so far all across Japan, I went to Gifu city, about a 25 minute train ride from Nagoya, to watch one of the most famous annual fireworks displays in the country - the Nagaragawa fireworks. We got there early enough and sweat a lot in the hot sun, but it was sure worth it for 1 hour and 45 minutes of one of the most memorable pyrotechnics exhibitions I’ve seen. Probably about five times during the display there were outbursts worthy of grand finales in most of the fireworks shows I’d seen before in my life. I know the quality of the photographs aren’t the best, but the movies, if you can download them, hopefully begin to give you a little taste.


Here are the links to the videos:

(And by the way, if these files are too big for you to download, I did put a few of them on youtube:1, 2, 3, 4.)
