Itabashi Firework Festival
Itabashi Firework Festival started in 1951 and every year it is at Tokyo Itabashi, right above a bridge called Todabashi. Many of the fireworks are designed uniquely so that it would fire horizontally. The most famous is their "Niagara Falls" which is a 700m long firework that fires right along the Arakawa river.
In total, there will be 12,000 fireworks, and this festival is also known for firing the biggest firework in Tokyo. With many unique fireworks that you can only see at this festival, many people come every year to just look at these beautiful fireworks with their own eyes.
If you go super early to reserve a free space area, there will be no fees. But, if you want to be secured with a seat and relax on a proper chair that day, you should reserve the paid seats. Depending on the area and number of seats, the price varies but there is a limit to the number of seats offered so it is a first come first serve system! The price for seats range from ¥2,100~ ¥28,000.
If you do not have an reservations for seats, you will go to either the 1-4 area or 14-17 area. If you are planning to go the 1-4 area, Takashima Daira Station is closest, and for those going to areas 14-17, use the Hasune Station.
If you have reserved seats, you can walk from either Nishi-Dai station or Hasune station for around 20 minutes.
This year, the Itabashi Fireworks are happening on 8/5, and it will be from 19:00 to 20:30. I hope you enjoy the experience of watching and hearing the 12,000 amazing fireworks!
