For many Japanese, summer means fireworks. Almost every weekend throughout Tokyo and Japan there are large fireworks or hanabi displays, sometimes with more than one event held on the same day. The following is a list of some of the more popular displays. Be warned, fireworks are extremely popular in Japan and the crowds are worse than the Tokyo rush hour!
A couple of words of advice, you might want to take your own food drinks as the lines can get very long. Also, if going by train, when you arrive at the station, be sure to buy your return ticket before heading off to the event.
