Sumidagawa Fireworks Festival

7:00pm – 8:30pm
Free

This is the big daddy of summer fireworks festivals in Tokyo. 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.

Please note that due to the 2020 Olympics the festival date has been changed from late July to the 11th, but is expected to return to normal in 2021.

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