Kita City Fireworks Festival 北区花火会

Area around the Arakawa River and the Iwabuchi Water Gate, Kita City, Tokyo

In order to prevent the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19), various facilities around Tokyo may change their operating days or hours. In addition, some events may be canceled or postponed. Please check official facility or event websites for the latest updates and information.

This fireworks festival is organized by a private association, with the help of residents of Kita City.
Seating along the riverbank is divided into three sections. The paid seating in the Blue Water Gate area offers concert-level acoustics where you can enjoy fireworks set to music. Meanwhile, the paid seating in the Red Water Gate area is a local favorite and offers a particularly photogenic view of the fireworks display over the gate. The remaining section has free seating. All spaces grant wonderful views of the 8,888 colorful fireworks that are launched into the night sky.
