Expats, who visits Japan at his/her first time, shall without doubt be surprised at bunch of things. For Japanese, they have their own spectacular life style, which makes travelers feel touched by heart and want to come back again. Its core value can be found when people have themselves involved into lots events throughout the year. For example, a very beloved firework show, which has its very long history in Japan.
Imaging when a huge amount of people wearing the traditional costume, mostly seen is Yukata(浴衣) or Kimono(着物), walking on the street, that doesn’t only look fascinating, but also literally ‘sounds’ amazing. For the traditional Geta shoes — Geta(下駄), a kind of wood made footwear, the Japanese wear it to match their traditional outfits — makes special sounds when it steps onto the road. People might not be able to picture a scene of an event detailed, but if we are talking about a sound, that can only be heard at a specific place, on a specific event, that shall hardly be forgotten.
What impressed people the most by Japanese culture shall be, that they give the most normal thing a new life in their own way. Nowadays, people can actually enjoy seeing a firework show in many places, even in their home country. But none of them can compare it with a Japanese made firework show event.
