In this video I visit the fireworks company Tsutsui Tokimasa, and learn how to make traditional senko hanabi fireworks. Ryota Tsutsui and his wife Kyoko were incredibly welcoming to me as I visited their fireworks factory to learn about senko hanabi.
They have dedicated their lives to preserving these fireworks and uplifting their community in ways far deeper than I expected.
Much of my time there I was unable to capture my own camera footage, as I had a job to do being filmed for Japanese TV.
To make up for the lack of context I was able to show in this video I highly recommend watching this short documentary to see more behind the scenes of this amazing company and family.
