Futakotamagawa Fireworks / 二子玉川花火大会

As it is currently in the middle of winter, I thought I would share a post from the previous summer. One of my friends had been inviting us every year to check out the Futakotamagawa Fireworks and this year which would be our final year in Tokyo, we decided to take them up on their offer. Our friends had bought reserved seating (which can be very expensive) as the fireworks are a popular event and is very crowded.


The weather was looking rather questionable.


I'm not liking the looks of those clouds.


Our friends 21 (a nickname of course) and wife who invited us.


There is a very high probability of the fireworks being cancelled due to rain.


We're still going to stick it out as long as possible.


Most of the other people are hoping for a clearing in the weather too.


But miracles do happen. The rain stopped, the sky cleared, and the okay was given for the fireworks display!


The display was going as planned and the rain seemed as if it was all a joke.


I had also taken some video clips but apparently they were too large to fit on this blog. But I hope you enjoyed the images.


And before you know it, the show is over.


We waited for the crowds to disperse before heading home.
