Sumida River Fireworks Festival

About Sumida River Fireworks Festival

The Sumida River Fireworks Festival is held on the last Saturday of July every year along the Sumida River in Tokyo. As many as 950,000 people go to see it every year, it is one of the two largest fireworks festivals in Tokyo along with the Edogawa Fireworks Festival held every August. There are 22,000 fireworks launched, so the number of fireworks sent aloft is impressive! Why don't you see the fireworks that are the summer features in Japan with your family and friends?
