"Fireworks on the Sumida-gawa" Sumida River Tip by CliffClaven

Sumida River, Tokyo: 16 reviews and 37 photos


One of the highlights of the Tokyo summer is the firework show over the Sumida river in August. The annual event attracts thousands, perhaps even millions, to the banks of the river. Old Cliffie was there, with a pretty girl and a can of Sapporo, to watch the soaring rockets and swirling showers of lights and colours. Perhaps Sydney did it better for the new millennium - but Tokyo does this every year.
