Yokohama Hanabi 2005

Filed under: — Andy @ 4:10 am

Not completely satisfied with the Tachikawa fireworks I visited my friend in Yokohama again to see the fireworks there. I went to Yokohama in the afternoon to do some of the things I didn’t get to do last time I visited. I met my friend at the station again and we started out by going for lunch at the Yokohama Curry Museum. I went to the Yokohama Ramen Museum a while ago so this time I wanted to eat some curry. I ate three kinds of curry all were pretty good. I especially liked the black one. After curry we went to the Yokohama China Town. I was actually not too impressed with it. It was too clean and expensive. China Town is supposed to be dirty and full of Chinese people and cheap food. It was interesting, but I think I like San Francisco’s better. I still of course bought some Chinese sweets but at Japanese prices. After China Town we went to find a spot for the fireworks. There were a lot of people there and finding a spot was difficult, but if there are any spots - I am a master at finding them. We got seats almost front row with a nice view. The fireworks were also pretty nice except for an annoying pause between the sets of fireworks. After a nice show we took a long walk to the station and I took a long train back home. The Yokohama fireworks were nice but still not that great. Granted, they were big but since it is a big city they were slightly far away. The next fireworks I was to see, in Ehime, was even better. More about that later.

Lots of pictures:

The first curry I ate. It was pretty good.

The black curry was strange but very good.

They had a lot of different curry available for sale in the shop. This is only a small part of the entire selection.

Of course it wouldn’t even be a China Town without a cat.

Beautiful Yokohama
