So many different locations of Fireworks to choose from throughout August, this time we headed to one in North Tokyo about 30 minutes from where we live and the fireworks was supposedly to go off for 1 hour 45 minutes with 11,000 shots.

Many people were out in their Yukatas and waiting in line to buy some food.

The best would be able to watch it from your own balcony. 😀

my conclusion is that I prefer watching the fireworks along the river side or no build up area.

We decided on a location that was at the edge of the best viewing location as we wanted to beat the crowd and arriving at 530pm, we were still able to get a good location.

Even though at a distance, the fireworks were still pretty as the weather was good that night with clear skies and a light breeze.

The best? They still bother to stop to differentiate their rubbish even if the bins were overflowing.
