Sumida River Fireworks Festival 隅田川花火大会

The history of the Sumida River Fireworks Festival dates far back to 1733. Although suspended on several occasions through the passage of time, it has been held every year since 1978 and is today one of the largest and most famous fireworks festivals of Tokyo. On top of traditional fireworks displays, a contest is held between new creative fireworks at Venue 1 to further enliven the event.
