Todakoen Fireworks Festival

On Saturday, August 3, I went with a group of 11 people to Todakoen for their annual fireworks festival. Despite the enormous crowds, we were able to find a spot to sit down and enjoy fantastic views of all the pyrotechnic goodness.

The crowd gathers hours before the show begins. The fireworks at Todakoen. The fireworks at Todakoen. The fireworks at Todakoen. The fireworks at Todakoen. The fireworks at Todakoen.

Many attendees arrive hours in advance just to put down sheets to claimn their spaces.
