One of the premiere spots to see summer fireworks in Tokyo is along the edge of the Futakotama River in Tokyo. Additionally, the popularity of the newly opened Tokyo Sky Tree drew an even larger crowd this year.
Two of our fellow TBS co-workers from the Computer Graphics department met us at Futakotama station. The doors of the packed train car opened to an even wider girth of travelers. Exiting the station quickly became painful and exhausting process as the temperature and humidity of the station doubled under the Tokyo summer sun.
