In Summer, Tokyo's excitement does for longer days.
In Summer as the temperature rises in Tokyo, so does the city’s excitement for longer days, balmy nights and escapes to nature, seasonal cuisine and cultural festivals.
The heat of summer in Tokyo can be overwhelming but the trade-off is that there is a plethora of activities to do during this season. Hanabi or fireworks festivals are a key highlight to summer. You can participate like a local by wearing a yukata (summer-style kimono), and enjoying Japanese street food, while appreciating fireworks that brilliantly light up the sky. There are also modern-day music festivals such as Summer Sonic and Fuji Rock which yearly attract crowds of music lovers from all over the world.
