Summer Grand Finale
You can't have a Japanese summer without fireworks. And usually, in Tokyo, you cannot have fireworks without crowding, loooong lines in the train stations and standing about waiting.
However, the all-knowing Wave-chan recommended a fireworks festival near her home, on the Seaside line.
Showing up a mere hour before the start of the show, we were stunned to be able to saunter down the beach and get some space right by the water. I went to get takoyaki (managing not to drop them on my yukata) and only had to wait in line for a few minutes. Mind boggling.
But for now we can sit in the cool sea breeze at night, running in the surf and laughing at ghost stories.
