Sumida River Fireworks Festival is one of the largest and most famous firework festivals of Tokyo. A spectacular 20000 fireworks were displayed on the Sumida river near tourist favorit site Asakusa.

It is said 960000 people came to see this fireworks festival. The competition for good viewing spots can be quite hard,so some people renting out a private boat or YAKATABUNE ( japanese -style boat used for recreation) and crusing around Tokyo bay.
