Kita City Fireworks Festival 北区花火会

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

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

2023 marks the tenth anniversary of the Kita City Fireworks Festival. The display has a narrative themed around Kita City, making it a truly unique event. This year, the theme is "A New Era." The autumn skies will be lit up by gorgeous, beautifully directed fireworks. The view from the paid seating is especially breathtaking. Music set in time with the display adds another level of enjoyment. The sight of fireworks going off above the illuminated Red Water Gate and the colorful Blue Water Gate is famous for its photogenic appeal.
