Geisha watching fireworks in Ryogoku. There are shouts of "Tamaya" and "Kagiya" when watching fireworks, which are the names of pyrotechnicians. It became famous because Kagiya, a 6th generation Yahei was in charge of the Kawabiraki fireworks in Ryogoku.

The Kawabiraki fireworks in Ryogoku began to dominate the upstream side of Ryogoku Bridge, and Kagiya's downstream side.
