    Mikawa fireworks

    by cheesecake17 Updated Oct 9, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness


    Mikawa (Mikawa is used to refer to the eastern portion of Aichi, including such cities as Toyohashi, Okazaki, and Toyota.)is famous in Japan for its fireworks manufacturing most of Japan's fireworks. So the Shogun could maintain security, Mikawa was the only area allowed to produce gunpowder which lead to the fireworks industry. The annual Okazaki fireworks are one of the best in Japan.

    If you are in Okazaki around the FIRST SATURDAY in AUGUST..dont miss the OKAZAKI SUMMER FESTIVAL FIREWORKS.....

    People all over the place doing the GOMANGOKU dance or Shouldering the MIKOSHI(portable shrine) down TEMMA DORI....
