Sumida River Fireworks Festival隅田川花火大会


Started in 1733 and passed down through the years, this is the oldest fireworks festival in Japan. It is counted as one of Tokyo's two major fireworks displays, the other being the Edogawa-ku FireworksFestival. About 20,000 fireworks launched from two venues brightens the night sky, including traditional fireworks such as chrysanthemums and willows, as well as more recent creations. At the first venue, 10 of the top pyrotechnicians in the country compete in a fireworks competition that whips the crowd into a frenzy. While you can't stop to watch in some places, including Azuma Bridge, we recommend loose-fitting, breathable clothing to let you take in the display while strolling along the Sumida River.

          The setting of countless iconic movie scenes and the inspiration for songs, poetry, and literature worldwide, Tokyo barely requires an introduction. It's hard for the kaleidoscopic neon lights, wacky pop culture, and some of the world's tallest structures not to instill excitement in any first-time visitor to Tokyo, whether you're in the very center of the hustle and bustle in Shinjuku or Shibuya or looking in from the quieter suburbs.
