The 2014 Tokyo Bay Fireworks Festival has been cancelled due to Typhoon No. 11

12,000 fireworks will go up in smoke and flames over 80 minutes in one of the capital’s most scenic fireworks spectaculars.

The official watching venues, which hold roughly 115,000 people charge plenty for the privilege, but since the festival is over the water, there are vantage points everywhere. People book out hotels and boats for this many months in advance.

For this event, one of the less squishy subway lines – the Toei Oedo Line becomes about as cosy as the Yamanote Line at 8am.  The closest station – Kachidoki – will be crowded beyond belief, so organisers advise using Tsukishima Station on the Yurakucho Line or Toyosu Station.

Dates: 10th Aug, 2014
Start/End Time: 18:50 – 20:10
