NileGuide Expert tip:

Show up early - really early - to claim a good viewing spot before the other million people come to take them all

Description:

Every summer Japan explodes with colors in the night sky, in the form of hanabi (fireworks). The ancient waters of the Sumida-gawa (Sumida River), running alongside Tokyo's historic Asakusa district, reflect the bursts of tens of thousands of fireworks on the last Saturday of July. About a million people gather to watch, often dressed in traditional summer yukata. The show starts at 7, but it wouldn't be a bad idea to show up by noon to secure a spot. The fireworks on the Sumida River are Tokyo's biggest bang.
