Koto City Fireworks Festival江東花火大会

Event

The Koto City Fireworks Festival, a long beloved traditional summer event on the Arakawa River, is an attractive fireworks display that can be enjoyed in an expansive and relaxing atmosphere. The primary venue for the fireworks, the Arakawa / Sunamachi Mizube Park is only 150 meters from the launch site. It is so close, one can hear and feel the sounds of the firework launches while watching them at close range. The view of the fireworks, launched from a boat on the Arakawa River, and their gleaming reflection on the river make for a memorable elegant summer evening. In addition to the comfortable viewing areas of the grassy river banks and wall, one can drink in the fireworks covered night sky while enjoying your dinner and sake from Yakata houseboats (reservations required) operated on that day only.

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.
