It's a bumper weekend for fireworks. Following on immediately from Friday's Jingu Gaien display, Tokyo Bay is hosting a major event of its own, with 12,000 fireworks due to go bang in the space of 80 minutes. One of the many such displays to be cancelled last summer, Tokyo Bay's is perhaps the most picturesque fireworks festival in the capital – and certainly its most anally controlled. You'll need a ticket to get into the prime viewing spots along the waterfront in Harumi, Toyosu and Hinode (long since sold out), and vast swathes of the bay are shut off to the public during the event, to the extent that the Yurikamome line doesn't even stop at Shin-Toyosu and Shijo-mae Stations for most of the day. On the plus side, you can still watch from numerous points around the city, including Roppongi Hills and Tokyo Tower.
