The annual Koto-ku Fireworks Festival will see 4,000 fireworks going off—making it about a third of the size of Tokyo’s biggest fireworks festivals. It’s still a good, colourful show though, in a nice spot—Sunamachi Mizube Park, near the Arakawa River. Expect a crowd of around 300,000 spectators.

The venue is 15 minutes from Minami-Sunamachi Station. Launch-time is 7:30pm and although the event is rain or shine, a typhoon will postpone it by either one or two days.

If you’d prefer to escape the maddening crowds and see the fireworks from a river boat, you can book a boat ticket here.
