Summer is hot, but that’s also when most of the festivals are held. I present to you (with much thanks to Yumi for bringing me and Haruka for her recommendation), Yokohama Sparkling Twilight, a fireworks festival held in mid-July.
Yokohama is about half an hour away from Tokyo, a city that’s much less busy and offers a romantic vibe for couples.
Some, mostly teens, dress up in their yukatas (summer versions of the kimono), traditional Japanese clothing. I don’t have a photo of this, but it is quite nice to see people so festive.
