There was a ship alongside the pier in Takeshiba. Might have explained why there were so many people in an area of town that was practically emty last year. Still, I jumped over the railings and went down onto the quayside to get some shots with the sun, the ship and the Rainbow Bridge in the background.

Justin and I went ended up in the same place for this year's first sunrise as we were in for last year's. Wasn't entirely meant to pan-out like that, but the nearby place we wanted to be at was full of people.
A few more of Japanorama's photography students turned up. The brave ones! Thanks Charles, Rishi, Justin and Kane for coming out. It was a fun morning.
