I thought perhaps my first post from Japan would be about the build up to the garden show, but instead it’s all about fireworks. Not the half hearted Catherine Wheels or Soggy Sparklers of bonfire night, but huge, watch out passing planes, light up the night sky deafening fireworks.
Last night those of us stil on site were treated to the most extraordinary firework display. I’m not sure what I found most impressive, the sound of the explosions reverberating around the surrounding hills, the sheer number of fireworks (21,000) or the crowds of visitors to Huisten Bosh who were also enjoying the show.
I can’t truly do justice to the scale of the show but I did manage to take a few snaps to give a hint of this spectacular display.
