Sumida River Fireworks 2017

The history of launching fireworks at Sumida River can be traced back to the 1700s, but it’s only in modern times that the event has changed from being a way to show respect to the gods to being more of a form of summer evening entertainment. Welcoming its 40th anniversary this year, the Sumida River Fireworks festival – which is the largest of its kind in Tokyo – is set to display 22,000 fireworks with different styles and surprises. Make sure you get there early to reserve your spot – somewhere on the strip of grass between Sakura Bridge and Kuramae Bridge.
