UPDATE: This event has been cancelled due to rainy weather.
Shocker! Having closed out Tokyo's fireworks season every late August for well over 30 years now, the Chofu Fireworks have – for some inexplicable reason – been moved to October in 2017. At least the city will still be celebrating its connection to the movie industry in an explosive way: as several film scenes have been shot on the banks of the Tamagawa, and Chofu is home to multiple studios and film-related companies, the festival is dubbed 'City of Cinema: Chofu Autumn Fireworks'. It sees around 8,000 rockets launched over the river, choreographed to popular film scores.
