Ryan’s Rant: My 2 Yen

If you enjoy being packed and herded like cattle in sweaty Summer heat, then Tokyo fireworks festivals are for you. I personally cannot stand these events. For me, it’s the perfect time to go anywhere in the city where the festival is not happening and enjoy an area that would usually be crowded. During the main festivals, you can finally hit many popular restaurants without waiting in insane lines, since so many people are torturing themselves waiting for fireworks. If you have to go to one, I think the Tamagawa one if your best bet. There are a few buildings with roof garden spots that you can see the fireworks from and avoid the craziness below.
