HIRO-SAN HAS TAKEN A TRIP BACK TO TOKYO TO ENJOY THE FIREWORKS IN THE SWELTERING SUMMER HUMIDITY

Hanabi

Everyone dresses in traditional yukata and visits places where “Hanabi” – spectacular fireworks that lasts for over one hour!

Hanabi is written in Kanji as 花火 and actually means “flower fire.”
花 = hana = flower
火 = bi = fire

You may recall that before, when introducing Mount Fuji that it is a volcano which, in Kanji is 火山 (ka-zan)

Kanji originally came from China so normally a Kanji can be pronounced in two ways. So 火 can be “ka” or it can be “bi.”

Enjoy seeing the fireworks!
