CHEER UP HANABI
Update – 1st June 2020 – The fireworks will happen tonight at 8pm Japan time or 12pm in the UK today. The organisers are not revealing any details whatsoever on the various locations, so just keep your eyes peeled on the sky tonight if you are lucky enough to be in Japan tonight.
Due to the worldwide COVID-19 pandemic, many fireworks display events across the world have been cancelled or postponed to a later date.
But the pyrotechnician wizards of Japan have come together with a new project titled ‘Cheer Up Hanabi’ (For those that didn’t know, the word Hanabi is the Japanese word for fireworks).
Japan is divided into 47 prefectures forming the country. Unfortunately, nobody knows when the fireworks will take place, but what we do know is that the fireworks will be fired simultaneously all across Japan, without prior announcement, for the first time in history.
Once the event has taken place, the following hashtag should be trending worldwide #cheeruphanabi
We will keep you posted.
