In the summer there's many fireworks events in Japan and one of the most famous ones is in Kamakura, about one hour south of Tokyo by train. I enjoyed walking around for the whole day and visiting Hachimangu Shrine as well as the Great Buddha statue and a quick look at Enoshima Island. I set up my blue tarp on the beach early to make sure I have a space to watch the fireworks in the evening, as the beach will be full of people well before the 7 p.m. starting time of the fireworks.
