Itabashi Fireworks Festival

The annual Itabashi Fireworks Festival is always a good show. Roughly 11,000 fireworks are expected to go off this year—and there should be some colorful character and flower shapes in the mix. The event goes on for an hour and 30 minutes. There are reserved seats and general sitting areas at the venue. If you don’t feel like dealing with the crowds, just invite yourself over to a friend who lives near Tobu-Nerima Station and watch from their place.

The nearest station is Nishidai on the Toei Mita Line.

    Itabashi fireworks are awesome, well worth a visit if you’re in north Tokyo or south Saitama – you can watch from the Toda Koen side of the Arakawa as well, the display is a joint venture between Itabashi-ku and Toda-shi.

    If the Mita line is a pain then Ukimafunado station on the JR Saikyo line (2 stops from Akabane) is just as convenient – follow the crowds to the river. Maruetsu supermarket by the station to stock up on hanabi essentials.

      Thanks so much for the local advice on this! We’ll definitely incorporate it into our info for next year’s event.
