Kevin Gifford does a good writeup about Falcom on 1Up, you should check it out.

But, that is my plug for Falcom games, I think this would be a good start to the weekend. We get out of class early on Fridays so we should be able take the JR up to Tokyo and arrive with plenty of time to spare, and I think it'll be a lot of fun to go see them perform in Japan.
The last Saturday of every July the Sumida River Fireworks Festival kicks off in Tokyo, and it is one of the oldest and most well known fireworks show in Japan. It is supposed to be nearly 2 solid hours of 花火「はなび」 (Flower-Fire, or fireworks) and looks to be a spectacular event to be a part of. Other than the fireworks, the streets are lined with vendors and people wearing yukata, and the summer festive mood is in full swing. I'm betting it will be a good time. The catch, though, is that this event will not happen if the weather is poor, since it would not be possible to reschedule an event of this caliber very easily. Hopefully it will be a beautiful night to wrap up Saturday with!
I have no solid plans for what we will be doing during the day on Saturday or on Sunday, but that is fine. Tokyo is a big city, after all, and I'm sure we will not be able to see everything that Tokyo has to offer in a single weekend, anyways. I went to New York City four times when I was in Saratoga Springs and I definitely did not get to see everything in that city, after all!
Well, that will be my last writeup for the next few weeks. I am going out to sea on Monday (we have to be on the ship all day Sunday, though), so with the ship's highly unreliable internet access I will not get to write. Thank you for reading, though, and thank you for 100 pageviews (hey, celebrating mediocrity is better than not celebrating at all!).
