Time Out says

Yukata-clad spectators crowd the streets of Harajuku and Aoyama during the mesmerising Jingu Gaien Fireworks, a display that ranks as one of Tokyo's top summer festivals. Now in its 41st year, the event will boast 12,000 fireworks.

The cluster of sports stadiums to the south of Sendagaya Station offer the best vantage points, albeit at a significant premium. Expect to pay between ¥4,000 and ¥9,000 for a seat, with the priciest ones at the main stage of the event: Meiji Jingu Stadium.

Tickets include a programme of J-pop performances in the run-up to the fireworks themselves – one of the acts is hip hop band Funky Monkey Baby’s. Alternatively, just wander around the surrounding area until you find somewhere you can see the action for free.

Tickets go on sale on July 1 at 10am. In case of stormy weather, the festival will be postponed to August 21.
