Chigasaki Hanabi 2010

Chigasaki South Beach Fireworks

Every summer, places the length and breadth of Japan celebrate summer with festivals and fireworks displays (花火). Since we moved out of Tokyo, we’ve been going to the Chigasaki hanabi at their South Beach, and this year was as fantastic as before. Despite the thousands of people, there was a mix of people on dates, families, parties of friends, but as ever, behaviour was good, the venue (essentially the beach!) was well organised, and we sat back to watch a fantastic (almost) hour of big fireworks.

I put a few more pictures up on the Flickr! page. Since I’m no longer a Pro member, I guess those pictures will disappear at some point.
