I went watching 10th Koga fire works festival on August 1st. It takes around 1.5 hours by train from Tokyo to Koga city which is in Ibaragi prefecture. I arrived at watching spot at the river side 1 hour before start. According to the city office, total 25,000 shots of fireworks are launched, this is one of the most shots in fireworks festival in Japan, so I felt exciting, and indeed, the exhibition was amazing and very big scale. Watching fireworks is poplar and traditional event in Japan especially in Summer season. This was the first time for me to visit Koga fireworks, and found it was nice place.
