The Sparks

There is a "Tezutsu hanabi" (Traditional fireworks of Japan) at Togo-Susano-jinnjya shrine (当古進雄神社), Togo Town, Toyokawa City, Aichi Prefecture, Japan, on the third Saturday of October every year. It is said that "Tezutsu hanabi" has nearly 400 years of history. The origin of this firework is said to be a chicken game of the pyrotechnists. And they also prayed to God for the safety of firework. Even now, "Tezutsu hanabi" has been passed down to posterity of inhabitants to pray for each wish.
