Japan: Fireworks

August 04, 2007

The family went down to Meriken Park this evening to watch the hanabi (fireworks). I went to this event previously; the first time I came to Kobe back in 2004. I don't know how nostalgic one can be of something that happened 3 years earlier though... Anyway, the wife and I dressed up in yukata (mine was Jean Paul Gaultier - seriously) and geta; both of which I found uncomfortable. It was also a warm night in the high 20's, but the wind across the harbour was fairly cool.

Meriken Park was full of people. We found a spot next to Oriental Hotel. The fireworks were good and we made it home quickly by avoiding the crowd.
