Summer yukatas!

Some people go to Tokyo’s fireworks for the, well, fireworks. Online you can go to many site to see beautiful images of fireworks. I go to fireworks events to see the many men in yukata. It’s a wonderous summer feeling to see so many guys wearing yukata and jinbei, often in the louchest fashion. Ah, summer!

Tokyo has so many fireworks events all summer. Even if you don’t go to all of them, you can look forward to riding the trains on Saturday evening and seeing many people, mostly young people, in traditional summer outfits. It’s one of my favorite parts of Tokyo summer.
