Tokyo Hanabi Festival 2009

Tokyo Dai-Hanabi-Sai is a big firework festival with 12,000 fireworks and over 700,000 viewers. There are few large grounds secured for viewers living in certain wards, and I was lucky enough to get tickets to one of them almost every year. From the ground, I can see fireworks shooting up in the sky above (so it is kind of tiring to film for a long time). I can even smell fireworks too!
