Japanese summer festival fireworks: Shirahama, Wakayama

Leave a comment

As the rice season comes to an end I’m going to focus a little more on cultural and tourist activities in our area. Much of that will showcase the Kumano Kodo, a UNESCO World Heritage site in our backyard. For now, though, the first of a couple posts on summer festivals in Wakayama. The two Shirahama fireworks shows are huge, drawing crowds from Osaka and further, and as a former fireworks geek in America I wanted to show the cool things they do with the fireworks here. Enjoy!
