Chatan Summer Carnival

Last night, J and I were supposed to meet some friends for dinner but didn't end up finding them so we ate some sushi at a "sushi go round" place near the Ferris Wheel. It wasn't the place that I really like to go to but they were super busy so we opted for the second best place in the area.

Anyhow, after eating our fill, we decided to walk a bit. We ended up heading towards Sunset beach because there were tons of people around and it seemed like something had to be going on. We were right.....once again, I had stumbled upon the Chatan Summer Carnival. I did this once before when my sister was visiting several years ago.

So we hung out, watched a bit of the music acts, had a few drinks and then realized that, like most festivals in Japan, there would be fireworks at some point.

Eventually they did start and there was one part where they shot out these red ones onto the water in front of us. Everyone assumed it was a dud that went to low or something but it turned out that it was the set up for a series of fireworks that were launched off the water into these beautiful arcs. I had never seen them done that way before so it was completely cool.

I took a bunch of pictures but these are three of the 6 best ones that came out....enjoy.
