I was always fascinated by the fireworks at Tokyo Sumidagawa and Tokyo Bay, but annoyed by either the felt narrow streets there or the millions of other spectators. HOWEVER, in 2012 I discovered a firework that can easily challenge the two while offering not only visual highlights but a splendid arena to enjoy the spectacle in a relaxed atmosphere at the wide and long riverbanks of the Edogawa. We came about two minutes before the show started but could still find a place to sit!! In fact, we enjoyed FOUR fireworks at the same time, the main event in front of us, a second down the river, a third up the river, and even a fourth across the river, for about two hours.
