This is amazing,I have been convinced to go the Sumida River fireworks. Think more of a festival then just fireworks, its bigger(much much biger) then just taking the kids to the school oval and yelling “green… blue… red…” as light fills the sky.
There are tens of thousands (seriously) of people just sitting the streets, none of them will really see much of the fireworks, the buildings are too tall. It is though a great oppertunity to get dressed in Gimbei and spend some time with friends or family.
It is actually really great to be a part of, there is every kind of person here, all sitting and enjoying the (sound of the) fireworks.
