This popular fireworks festival along the banks of the Arakawa River is back for the first time in four years following cancellations due to Covid-19. The history of this annual affair goes back to 1924, and this year 15,000 fireworks will be set off during the hour-long event on Saturday July 22.
You can enjoy the fireworks from either the Nishi-Arai or Senju side of the Arakawa River between Nishi-Arai and Senjushin bridges. There are several parks along the banks, on which you can set up a picnic to watch the show, including the Arakawa Nishiarai Bridge Green Space.
While the event is free, there are ticketed seats available (bookable from June). Keep an eye on the website for the latest information.
