Summer in Japan is the season of fireworks!

sumida fireworksA signature summer event in Japan is fireworks displays. There is a fireworks show somewhere in Japan every weekend during July and August. The Sumida River Fireworks Festival is a fireworks festival with a long history, being a successor to the “Ryogoku Kawabiraki Fireworks” festival that began in 1733, and it is loved by many people as a signature Tokyo summer event. Since the festival has an expected annual attendance of nearly a million people, fireworks are set off from two locations. There are sightseeing spots such as Sensoji temple and Tokyo Sky Tree near the festival site. This year it will be held on July 27th or postponed to the following day and cancelled if the following day has inclement weather. Enjoying fireworks or summer festivals with local people wearing yukata will definitely become an unforgettable memory in your life.
