Enoshima Fireworks 2007

I met up with Laura yesterday in Enoshima for the fireworks. It was excellent, but more on that in a minute. It was actually a full Shonan day but I will get to that in the next post.

As for the fireworks show, this is the second year in a row that I went and it was really good. This year, we went to Katase Enoshima Beach, which is the one right in front of where the fireworks are set off. It was crowded and we paid 5,000 yen for the right to sit on the beach, but it was still well worth it.

While we waited for the sun to set, we were treated to a rare summer view of Mt. Fuji...looks good, right?


Just watching everyone was a lot of fun!

And as I mentioned a few times before, the fireworks were very cool. As one would expect, the pictures do not do the show justice, but here they are anyway.


The downside came afterwards. They expected 140,000 people, which is fun until everyone tries to get on the train at the same time. I thought waiting an hour would be enough, but it was more like two and we did not actually get on a train until after 1030pm. Fortunately for me it was the Shonan Monorail...love that train! I got home around 1am.
