64th Itabashi Fireworks Festival 第64回 いたばし花火大会

Banks of the Arakawa River, Itabashi City, Tokyo

Note: The 2023 installment of this event has already taken place.

Organized jointly with the town of Toda on the other side of the river, this festival features a total of 13,000 fireworks, including the "No. 15" variant, which is one of the largest in Tokyo. You'll also see many other types of fireworks, including artistic ones that have been made by Japan's top pyrotechnicians, a 700-meter-long Niagara Falls-themed display that is among the largest of its kind in the Kanto region, and even Pokémon fireworks. What's more, these fireworks are set off close to the viewing site, so you can feel the impact of the launching.

For an additional fee, reserved seating is also available. Get a prime seat if you want to see fireworks go off right before your eyes, or group seats to have a good time with friends and family.
