A Japanese Master Craftsman Taught Me To Make Senko Hanabi Fireworks

In this video I visit the fireworks company Tsutsui Tokimasa, and learn how to make traditional senko hanabi fireworks. Visit my sponsor Tab For A Cause and support charities with every tab you open! https://tab.gladly.io/nighthawk/

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: https://www3.nhk.or.jp/nhkworld/en/ondemand/video/3019088/
