The city of Yokohama’s public library took a great initiative and digitized six ancient books dated from the 19th century.

These six books depict firework designs by Jinta Hirayama, a master in this art at that time. We have selected a few designs here, the full books can be downloaded from the city of Yokohama’s public library’s website (granted you find out how to navigate around on a Japanese website).
