In summer, numerous spectacular fireworks events are held throughout Japan. One of those is the Tokyo Bay Fireworks. Although its not as large as the Sumida-gawa Fireworks (Ryogoku), also held in Tokyo, the Tokyo Bay Fireworks still fires off 12,000 fireworks over an hour and half. The Sumida-gawa Fireworks fires off 20,000 fireworks, but the crowds are extreme.
Rather than dealing with crowds and lack of toilets, we decided to get on a yakata-bune boat (old-fashion houseboat) to view the Tokyo Bay Fireworks. Tempura dinner was served on the boat.
The fireworks were spectacular -very artful and many were absolutely huge:
