Fireworks during the summer are a big thing in Japan. This weekend we went to Yokohama Sparkling Twilight. We arrived at the festival and had some snack foods for lunch. Afterwards, we toured the Hikawa Maru, the last ship from before World War II in Japan. It served as a luxury liner until the war started when it turned into a hospital boat. It then served as a cargo ship until it retired. It was named after a Shinto Shrine and reminded me of the Titanic. In fact, after the Titanic sank, adjustments were made to the ship to guarantee it would not sink!
We walked along the port some more until the fireworks started. That night, 3000 fireworks were set off over the port. It was beautiful!
