The Tachikawa Showa Kinen Park Fireworks Festival will see 5,000 fireworks launched, making it a medium-sized festival by Tokyo standards.
About 300,000 people attend. Expect lots of yukata and picnic baskets — it’s a nice idea to bring dinner and make an evening of it.
Entrance to the park is entirely free after 6 p.m. but if you paid the entrance fee to the park earlier in the day, you’ll get a better viewing spot. Apparently it gets crowded around 5 p.m.
