Jingugaien Fireworks Festival

7:30pm – 8:30pm
Free

The Jingugaien Fireworks Festival is the most urban and hence accessible of the Tokyo fireworks festivals. Approximately 10,000 fireworks will be hurled into the air over a paying audience within Jingu Stadium, Jingu Secodnary Stadium or the Chichibunomiya Rugby Field – or you can set yourself up anywhere within a 1-kilometre radius for free and you’ll still get a great view. Presumably as the festival doesn’t take place over water, the fireworks don’t reach the same altitude as many of the other large festivals.

Note – in 2019, the firework launch site has been moved from Jingu Stadium to the Softball Stadium, which will affect the unpaid viewing locations ‘significantly’ according to organisers – so potentially don’t rely on your usual viewing spot (if you have one).

The festival will be rescheduled for the following day if it’s raining.
