We Are One Yodogawa Hanabitaikai (Firework Festival)

English-- Cathy 
Japanese-- Manami

Along with thousands of other people, We Are One International Party-goers crowded onto the banks of the Yodogawa River to await night-fall and the spectacular firework display. We passed the time sharing food and drink, and meeting both old and new friends from around the world.
Special thanks to those who went early and held a space for everyone!

It will be a FREE picnic style event where people can hang out and get to know each other, and everybody can watch and cheer for one of the most famous Fireworks in Osaka at night. It will be held by the Yodogawa River, because of how popular this firework is, some of us will be there slightly early (at 1 p.m.) to secure some primary locations... So if you would like to join in the fun, then please feel free to come along.... The more the merrier.. And the more happy volunteers, the more space we can secure ;-) contact us!


There will be lots of booths set up in the surrounding areas, where you can get all kinds of Japanese YATAI food like, Yakisoba, Karaage, Takoyaki, Kakikoori etc., because this will be a FREE event we thought it would be a nice idea if everyone comes along with something that they can share... Whether it's some delicate handmade snacks, soft drinks, strong drinks ;-) or some food from your home country, bring a little something that you can offer would be ideal :-)
