The Ohori fireworks festival is held every year on August 1st. Although Ohori park is in the center of Fukuoka city, six kilometers from my house, I was able to see and hear the fireworks clearly from my third floor window. I know the park is 6 kilometers from my house because many times I have run there and back using my GPS watch. I don’ like to go and see the fireworks there because it is just so crowded. I prefer to go to the Meinohama fireworks festival in Atogohama every August 15th, which is always a day off for me. Besides it isn’t that crowded and I can get really close to the firework even though they are smaller than those of Ohori park, I just love sitting on the beach and eating a snack while watching these huge explosions up close.
I took some pictures of the Ohori park fireworks. It was pretty hard, but I think I got a couple of good shots.
