Sumida River fireworks festival, the epitome of excellence

Last Saturday of July, Tokyo sky turn into a sparkling showdown between two rivaling firework companies.

Starting with just a slight `puff ´at sunset…

Then later, darkness and people conquer the streets…the unbelievably clean streets. No need for sofas..

Rooftops, for photo ops…

Eating off the floor is for people with low standards cornering cleanness. Eating off the road on the other hand…broom and shovel, just wont cut it!

The brave & proud street sweepers must be exhausted…that’s for sure.

    Hi,

    What was the best location to see the fireworks?

    Well, for watching the fireworks I would recommend to(politely) crash a local rooftop-party!

    I you prefer to stay grounded, Senso-ji Temple is a popular (crowded) area for watching the blooming fireflowers, or Sumida park (also crowded).

    Anyway…enjooy (^_^)
