Japanese fireworks nights are what summer was made for.
And there is plenty of choice, with displays all over the city throughout August. A night at the hanabi might include putting on a yukata and strolling near the river, or perhaps some J-pop concerts in a baseball stadium followed by bangs that echo around the seats?
This Friday, the comlex of stadiums and sports grounds between the Shinanomachi, Sendagaya and Gaienmae stations will be teeming with people waiting for one of Tokyo’s biggest fireworks displays, the Jingu Gaien Hanabi.
Display runs from 19:30 – 20:30 and there are many events going on before and after. The stadiums cost a bit to get in, but the whole area is free to stroll around and look for a spot so make a plan and enjoy.
See the Jingu Hanabi official site for more details or to buy tickets to the stadium – for between ¥5-7,000.
When: Friday, Aug 10 19:30 – 20:30
