Yeah! We arrival to Omimaiko!

We held a TB meet-up in summer 2012. In summer time,we like to do Hanabi at night so Ayaka and I were thinking of it,then fainaly organized enjoy at biggest lake Biwa in Japan and to do Japanese custom of summer suikawari there,then to do Hanabi. We welcomed Oui from Norway as TravBuddy,and some other Koreans,Singaporians were joined us. We joined around 12:00pm at Osaka,it was a little late going to lake but needed stay there till getting dark for hanabi. It taken 1hour 30min from Osata station. I saw rural viewing from the window of a train...Oui seems enjoying to see real Japanese in rural.

We arrival at Omimaiko station. It's an one of popular swimming area of lake Biwa.

We found a space for sitting down after walk 15min from the station.  Some Korean guys are make swell our ring of a float. I put some water in my water guns. Ayaka started play with beach ball. It was fine day,we have a lot of fun with playing!

Oui is very fun person,and out going person. He becoming familier with an other group which played close to our sitting place. That group also included some foreigners and Japanese. We had much fun with playing a beach ball. We offered to them to do Suikawari together,for sure they were looks like interested in about this saying "I saw it only in Manga!!". Suikawari is crush a watermelon by a person who was hide themself eyes with a stick. And audience are have to guide them saying "go straight!" "turn right!"...like that but of course said lie sometimes. Usually it must do some people but this time a guy crushed himself one time,oh well we just enjoyed the atmothphere of that and ate crushed watermelon together.

We had to wait being dark for doing Hanabi. The other group went back to Kyoto. We enjoyed make charactors by hanabi when got dark around,tried make it many times and successed some nice picture! I love to see these photos because it makes me remember we spent a whole nice day there.
