This Photo of the Week (POTW) is for Maritime Day. Originally on the 20th of July, but now on the third Monday of the month of July, annually. On this day, ocean going vessels did not leave the port. There usually is a fireworks show at Nagoya Port, and since it is summer, my guess is that other ports will also have a fireworks show, too. Since Japanese people love fireworks in summer, the two go hand in hand. More maritime and water related photos can be found at my Asia Photo Connection / Henry Westheim portfolio, and my PhotoShelter portfolio.
