Fireworks in winter!

Do you think that fireworks are events only in summer?

I saw Tezutsu (hand-holding) Fireworks on the 11th of January with snow.
It was held at Hida Earth Wisdom Center.

(10min drive by car or bus from J-Hoppers Hida Takayama)

Also this place had an event " ice and light"
There were sculptures made from ice.
The sculptures were illuminated with the light and twinkle like a diamond.

The Tezutsu Fireworks mark the start of this event.
Fireworks are set off bamboo cylinders handheld by "shooters",
who got showers of sparks from fireworks, creating extremely exciting scenes.


I love the moment when the bottom of the cylinder came off with a big sound.
