When shooting long exposures at night in such an environment, you can walk about with a flash and maually fire it off multiple times.

If you wish to be in the photo, you can be in it multiple times. Set the flash units so the camera does not see them and fire them with a remote. Move them, and yourself to a new location in the image, set up, and fire again.

That could be fun, I have to think about interesting scenes. Mmm.

It might be helpful to have a different remote on the camera. The RFN-4s Wireless Remote Shutter Release should work well.

It seems the RFN-4s is not available easily in Japan for some reason. Anyways, I am not sure what would be the advantage of getting one: for that "project", obviously, it would be good, but I wouldn't know what to do with it most of the time...
