Sumidagawa Fireworks Festival 2024

★ Staff recommendation
7:00pm – 8:30pm
Free

This is the big daddy of summer fireworks festivals in Tokyo. The Sumida River Fireworks show kicks off at 7 p.m. and runs for a full 90 minutes. This festival attracts massive crowds. Check out our guide to surviving the Sumidagawa Fireworks Festival.

Where can I see the fireworks for free?

For spots that afford a good view and aren’t insanely crowded, we recommend Shiori Park (600m from Minamisenju Station) or the north part of Oyokogawa Water Park near Tokyo Skytree and Honjo-Azumabashi Stations.

If there is stormy weather, the event may be postponed or canceled (announced at 8 a.m. on the day).

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