It had been a year since I watched Hanabi (Fireworks) in Japan. This year, I decided to go watch Hanabi in Futago Tamagawa. Futago Tamagawa Hanabi is known for its gorgeous fireworks. I have heard lots of good thing about it. Last week, My friends and I went there.
Sea of people near the station. The street was jammed with so many people.
The phone network was very bad that day. Having a very hard time trying to call friends. It was a good thing that we finally able to meet up.
A random shot of the building.
The street was decorated with beautiful lanterns. It felt like we were in a big festival.
I could see lots of people in every direction. I was a bit worried that we were not going to be able to find a good place to sit.
I was surprised to see that there were still lots of spaces left. Very different than what I had last year at Sumidagawa Hanabi.
Random photo of my surroundings.
Lots of happy faces there. Everyone was waiting patiently for the fireworks.
When the fireworks started, everybody watched it in awe. Some traditional Japanese music were also being played during Hanabi. The fireworks itself were very artistic and nice.
It was a fantastic night. This place immediately became my favorite place to watch Hanabi.
The three Fireworks photos were taken by my friend, Steve. That was my first time shooting fireworks, so most of them were failures. Shooting fireworks felt very different than what I used to shoot. Well, It was a very good experience. I will make sure that next time I could post my own fireworks photos.
