Tokyo fireworks

Explosions of colour light up the summer sky – find the best hanabi party with our complete guide

An essential part of any summer in Tokyo, fireworks displays will again be taking place all over and around the capital in July and August. This year's celebrations kick off with Yokohama Sparkling Twilight on July 15 and include everything from classics (Sumida River, Jingu Gaien) to film-themed festivals (Chofu) and smaller-scale happenings out in the western forests (Ome). It's time to dust off your yukata, find the best viewing spot well in advance, and enjoy the colourful spectacle while snacking on some tasty festival grub. And if you need a drink after the show, try one of the city's best beer gardens.
