Tamagawa Fireworks Festival

The 39th edition of Setagaya’s biggest fireworks festival takes place above the Tama River near Futakotamagawa Station on the Tokyu Denentoshi Line and the Tokyu Oimachi Line.  This is an extremely popular festival so get there early if you want to get a good spot. It gets so crowded that festival guidelines stipulate a 90cm by 90cm allowance on your blue sheet for one person!  Also, you’re best off visiting the toilets at the height of the fireworks as there are enormous lines as soon as the Tamagawa Fireworks festival ends.
