Dazzling Photos of Summer Firework Festivals in Japan


Every summer in Japan, there are around 200 separate firework festivals, known as “Hanabi Taikai,” which light up the sky in all sorts of colors. Japanese photographer Keisuke spent his time trekking to several of the shows this summer, an effort which allowed him to capture some mesmerizing firework photos.

Keisuke is only 25-years-old but has already earned a number of awards for his landscape photography. His images have also attracted over 27,000 followers on Instagram.

The firework festivals usually occur in July and August, and it’s a tradition that dates back to the early 18th century.
