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 12,000 fireworks will be hurled into the air over a paying audience within Jingu Stadium, Jingu Secondary Stadium or the Chichibunomiya Rugby Field. Alternatively, 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.

In 2022, the fireworks will be let off from the Jingu Secondary Stadium next to Jingu Stadium. As usual, tickets are required to enter the stadium. The surrounding roads will be heavily regulated and restricted in some places, so check this map before relying on your usual viewing spot (if you have one)

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

To prevent the spread of COVID-19, many events have been canceled. Always check official sites before heading to an event.
