Showa Kinen Park Fireworks Festival

7:15pm – 8:15pm
Free

The Tachikawa Showa Kinen Park Fireworks Festival will see 5,000 fireworks launched, making it a medium-sized festival by Tokyo standards.

What happens?

Just under 400,000 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. It gets crowded around 5 p.m. There will also be paid seating available.

How to get there

The nearest station is Nishi-Tachikawa or Tachikawa Station on the JR Line.

Organizers may cancel events, alter schedules, or change admission requirements without notice. Always check official sites before heading to an event.
