Sumidagawa Fireworks Festival

7:00pm – 8:30pm
Free

This is the big daddy of summer fireworks festivals in Tokyo, although due to COVID-19 and the Olympics, the 2021 event is scheduled to take place in October. The Sumida River Fireworks show kicks off at 7pm and runs for a full 90 minutes. This festival attracts massive crowds. Check out our guide to surviving the Sumidagawa Fireworks Festival.

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 until the following day.

If you want to share your fireworks photos with the Tokyo Cheapo audience, use hashtag #cheaposummer on Twitter or Instagram.

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