Japan’s oldest fireworks festival dates back to 1733, where it was held in memory of the victims of a severe famine the previous year. It turned into an annual event in 1978 and is now Tokyo’s biggest hanabi event, with close to a million people oohhh and ahhing over some 22,000 rockets lighting up the night sky.
