I went here to see the fireworks over Sumeda river. The fireworks were amazing. The police managed the crowd very well. We had a fantastic time seeing the various types of fireworks.

Do something about different while in Tokyo and take a boat down the beautiful Sumida River. It's so nice to take some time out of hectic Tokyo and cruise down the river. It's a unique way to see the city.

It is just a walk by the river and there is nothing extraordinary but seeing the the Sky Tree, the new icon of Tokyo, and the Sumida city can be memorable.
