Itabashi Fireworks

11,000 fireworks light up the night on the Arakawa River during the Itabashi Hanabitaikai. With the Todabashi bridge in the background, the popular summer display attracts a number of visitors eager to see the bright lights and brilliant displays. Many guests don summer yukata, and go early to reserve their viewing spots.

If you happen to be in Tokyo over summer, you must grab the chance to view one of the many fireworks display happening over several sites in Tokyo. And wear a summer yukata to one! The one I went to was at Itabashi, and as expected, it was crowded with locals and visitors. Although there is an area for non-ticket holders, generally, the view was better from the allocated seats for ticket holders. The fireworks were magnificient, creative, and more colorful than most fireworks I have ever seen. Not a moment wasted!

Saiko Doman Green Park

Reviewed By v35p_together - Sapporo, Japan

この公園はとても広く、駐車スペースもたくさんあり、いろいろな楽しみ方があります。
スポーツでは野球場、テニスコート、サッカー場、彩湖をひと回りする4.7kmのランニングコース。
レジャーでは、釣り場(金魚とヘラブナ)、バーベキュー場、彩湖ではウインドサーフィン、ラジコンのレースで遊んでいました。
家族連れはバーベキューをしてる人達が多かった様に思えます。
私はこのランニングコースを一周しました。自然の中を彩湖を眺めて風を感じながら走るほぼフラットなコースは気持ち良かったです。
ただ、同じコースをサイクリングの人も使うので注意が必要です。

Rikkyo University Ikebukuro Campus

Reviewed By ワンケディ - Fukaya, Japan

The red brick buildings crept with ivy of the University of Saint Pauls are really beautiful and this place is a hidden hitorical spot in Ikebukuro. The curry rice of school cafeteria is worth trying, too. The ceiling of cafeteria reminds me something like the abbey of the Middle Ages. Although this is not my alma mater, I like visiting here as a tourist.

Jorenji Temple (Tokyo Daibutsu)

Reviewed By Oliver1646 - Portland, Oregon

This statue is about the same size as its more famous kin, the Great Buddha of Kamakura. Both are seated outdoors, but the Tokyo one is surrounded by trees which partially block the view during the leafy season. The temple grounds are very agreeable. There seem to be a lot of Thai visitors.The authorities apparently have not decided whether the Tokyo Great Buddha is an important tourist site, or not. The signs leading from the Mita line station at Nishitakashimadaira clearly mark some junctions and absent entirely from others. if you follow the signs to the Botanical Garden and do not go more than two blocks past the 7-Eleven you will be right there.

Warabi Hata Matsuri

The "Warabi Hata Festival" has been held since 1951 in Warabi City, where the cotton industry thrived from the late Edo period. Originally it was an event to pray for the prosperity of the textile industry, and it has since come to be referred to as one of the three major festivals of Warabi. The festival is centered round August 7th, the date that the man who developed the cotton industry, Takahashi Shingoro, began his textile business, and takes place over a period of four days. In addition to Tanabata decorations in the shopping arcade at the west exit of Warabi Station, there is great activity with a variety of events such as shows, teodori dance, and mystery tours...

蕨の機織り業の始まりの日が旧暦の7月7日にちなんで、機織りと七夕を祝うようになった祭りです。日本画の七夕飾りが特に魅力的で、外国人にも受けるように思われます。積極的に訪日外国人観光客にもアピールすべきだと思いました。

It is a huge park in Tsukagoshi Warabi. If you want to do some running, this place is the most suitable place to run around. Also nice place for small children to play around.
