Tokyo Bay Fireworks

Events - August 7th, 2009


Each year the sky above the city is lit up as thousands of Tokyoites celebrate the summer with a bang. From Harumi park on the edge of Tokyo Bay you can get a great vista of one of the biggest and most popular firework festivals in Japan, but arrive early to claim a spot. The Rainbow Bridge and the surrounding cityscape will be illuminated by 12,000 fireworks, but that’s only half of the appeal; the surrounding food stalls sell all of the traditional festival grub one could hope for.
