  1. Hi, I agree that definitely it will be really great to catch up Sumidagawa HANABI festival, the most popular fireworks in Japan. As well as that one, actually there’re many fireworks in Tokyo and Yokohama.

    I heard that the one held in the Yamashita park, Yokohama city will be also exciting, it seems that’s the newest fireworks recently in Kanagawa and Tokyo. I assume that it’s a brand-new trend, then we’ll have a meetup under such a nice great fireworks, if you have any interests on it, feel free to join us! http://www.triphugger.com/2015SummerFireworks0718_en.htm

    Thanks!
