Tokyo Prepares For The Sumidagawa Hanabi Taikai Fireworks

2010-07-31 Hanabi Taikai Sumidagawa

Japan's capital, Tokyo, is preparing itself for a river-based firework spectacular, set to be held in two months time.

The Sumidagawa Hanabi Taikai also known as the Sumida River Fireworks Display will take place on Tokyo's main waterway on Saturday 27th August 2011.

The amazing fireworks are usually held on the last Saturday of July, but this year the event has been moved to August

The Japan National Tourism Organisation recommends two particular viewing spots, where tens of thousands of fireworks are to be set off.

Firstly, people standing between the downstream area of Sakurabashi Bridge and upstream of Kototoibashi Bridge will have a great view. The tourism body also recommended setting up from downstream of Komagatabashi Bridge to upstream of Umayabashi Bridge.

If there is heavy rain or other adverse weather, the fireworks will be postponed, but the event will go ahead if there is only a light drizzle. For further information click here.
