TokyoBay fireworks – Aug 11


 

 

Eventually made it to my first firework festival in Japan and it was brilliant! Myself and my girlfriend dressed up in our Jimbei and Yukata and headed along, joining around 80,000 people down by the bay. It’s one of the best things to do in Japan without spending a small fortune in the process..

 

 

They used 12,000 fireworks and they were going off constantly for 80 minutes, amazing to watch 🙂

Climbing Mt. Fuji


So while everyone was getting ready for 86 Style at Fuji Speedway, I was watching the most amazing sunrise I have ever seen, on top of Mt. Fuji.

It had been on my list of things to do since moving to Japan over 2 years ago and my friend Saya wanted to climb for her birthday so I said we would do it together Aug 4/5….

Ready for anything 😛

 

So we set off from Shinjuku station and arrived at Mt. Fuji level 5 at around 7pm. We were lucky enough to catch a beautiful sunset before we even started…

 

 

 

Beautiful stuff!

 

Time for a bit of food before we headed up.

So it’s pitch dark the whole way up and I have no photos until this happened….
