1.Be Ready for Too Much Crowded Areas.

According to an official site, almost a million people will come to the festival. Let’s imagine such number of people come to one place. If you want to stroll in crowded areas, I recommend you two things: always keep your water during the festival and go toilet when you find it, because the season around the date is quite humid every year and you don’t have to feel embarrassed to seek and wait long lines for the toilets when you are in dire need of it.


2. Decide Where to Watch Fireworks


If you want to watch fireworks with comfort environment to avoid any confusion, you can find some hotels which offer some rooms for fireworks.

Hotel Hoka club Asakusa

Hotel MyStays Asakusa

These hotels has some rooms where you can watch fireworks.

*Before you book a room, it is better for you to contact each hotel whether you can book the room enables you to watch fireworks.

APA hotel Asakuramae

Hotel Kuramae
