Nagaoka Fireworks Festival has a sad history.
On August 1, 1945, there was an air raid of the American army in Nagaoka.
At that time, 1,486 civilians were killed.
Every year, around this time, citizens raise beautiful fireworks here in the sky.
These fireworks are for the dead.
And they are very beautiful and powerful.
