Each year, there are many beautiful firework events light up the sky during the summer in Japan.
Japan is known to have the most beautiful fireworks in the world. Fireworks in Japan have been used in the Olympic in the past.
These are the major firework events in 2016 that are scheduled for the Tokyo area.
The 38th Sumida Fireworks
Seeing one of Tokyo's largest fireworks shows is like a rite of passage; you can't say you experienced a Tokyo Summer without witnessing this mesmerizing display of explosives while being jostled around by other spectators. Blasts of hot pyrotechnic art will paint the sky in wild colors between 19:05–20:30 on July 30th (Saturday) this year, As several tens of thousands of awe-inspiring fireworks explode above, you'll definitely be glad you have come!
To get a good spot along the Sumida River, plan on arriving mid-day. Another popular place to view the fireworks is from the rooftop of a yakatabune (a traditional house-boat), as it lazily floats down the Sumida River. For those not lucky enough to get a seat on one of those, try staking out at Sumida Park. Don't forget to pick up some beer, sake and snacks to tide you over until the show begins.
