Hanabi in Tokyo 11/8

Post by Txkun » Sat 07.14.2007 4:06 am

Hi!

I'm arranging to go to see Hanabi on that day (11/8) and I know it will be on Tokyo Bay. But since Tokyo Bay isn't "small" ;) and I would like to find a nice spot to see them with friends would someone be so kind to help me finding it?
By any chance is someone planning to go there too?

Bye!

Yes, I intend to do that too. But I still don't know exactly where from.
I was planning to go to tourist information about that!

Quindi, se trovo gente che parla italiano quella sera, chiedero': Txさんですか。

Well, then, I really don't understand what your last post was about, or why you felt a need to make it.

The post just didn't make sense to me, sorry for ruffling your feathers there, richv. My post was completely innocent, just what did you think I was saying?

Excuse me, I don't think abbreviated profanity is innocent. Txkun is planning a trip to Japan, and was asking for information and if he could meet anyone. What's wrong with that?

Nothing was wrong with it! How does "I misunderstood" = "something being wrong"? Why would you try to turn something so insignificant into an accusation of some vague wrongdoing on my part? I asked you already WHAT it was you THOUGHT I meant and I still got no answer. Now if you'll excuse me I'm going to extract myself back into mostlylurkdom because I'm not the drama-loving type, thanks.

Txkun, I hope you realize that I wasn't saying anything against you or the thread at all.

No problem here. Maybe my reply to carolinesan was little misplaced.
Next time I'll PM.

Does WTF stand for Wonderful Toky-bay Fireworks? ;)

According to the official site, if you want to watch it from the main site called 晴海主会場(Harumishukaijou), you need an entrance voucher. As for an entrance voucher, you might be able to get it by application from the official internet site before July 20th.
If you fail to get this, you might watch it from 晴海第2会場, 晴海第3会場 or 豊海運動公園会場. I guess these sites will be full of people by 16:00 at the latast.

Last year, one of my acquaintances broke his arms at tokyo bay fireworks. (Although I wasn't there, some said he fought up against a drunken man in the crowd. ) Please be careful and enjoy it. :)

I thought Nozomi was referring to "caroline mo sarai a tokyo?" which doesn't make sense, at least not in any language I know.

I'm guessing it's Italian mixed with Japanese? If the post were all Italian it would be okay, but mixing it with Japanese just makes it look like all-Japanese with a bunch of nonsense mixed in.

You do know what the F in WTF stands for, don't you?

Next time, avoid the acronyms and quote what you don't understand, so you in turn aren't misunderstood.
