The 34th 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 7:40pm and although the event is rain-or-shine a typhoon will postpone it by either one or two days.
