Hanabi (fireworks) season is started last week.
If you want to become a Japanese, you should wear Yukata.
But wearing just Yukata isn't completed yet.
You should wear a certain footwear and accessories.
Geta is one of Japan's traditional types of footwear which is similar to clogs.
Geta is made of a wooden board with a Y-shaped cloth thong.
It is perfect with kimono and yukata.
Zori are similar to flip-flops, made of rice straw, lacquered wood or leather with Y-shaped thongs.
Sensu are folding fans, made of paper and a bamboo.
One side is decorated with beautiful pictures like flower, tree, animal, etc.
You can fold them and bring with you anywhere.
They are really convenient item during summer.
Uchiwa are non-folding fans with a long handle,
made by attaching paper with glue to both sides of a bamboo frame or plastic frames.
Now, you are ready to go to fireworks event!!!
