The 2009 Tokyo Bay Fireworks

August 15, 2009 by: Clement Nyirenda

Last weekend my family was invited by Soni Youn, our Korean friend, to watch the Tokyo Bay Fireworks from her workplace, Next, on the 15th floor of one of the buildings on Triton Square facing Tokyo Bay. The Japanese people have a great love for fireworks, and they occur throughout the summer in various neighborhoods of Tokyo. But this show is the biggest of them all.

We had a wonderful time at Soni’s workplace. Next employees brought their families to spend some time together, chatting and enjoying the food while watching the fireworks. We made friends with the Takedas and the Ikenagas. We also had the opportunity to chat with Mr Inoue, the founder of Next. Here are some of the photos which were taken before the fireworks.

There were more than 12,000 fireworks. While we were enjoying the fireworks from Soni’s workplace, more than 700,000 spectators were packed at different vantage spots in Tsukiji, Harumi, Odaiba and other areas in the Chuo Ward of Tokyo for the 80-minute extravaganza. Here are some of the photos from the day.
