Japan has some of the best fireworks festivals in the world. Most Japanese local governments spend a portion of their annual budget on some type of fireworks festival and they often compete against the neighboring government for attendance and the number of actual fireworks used. The fireworks festivals in Tokyo are very popular and massive party events and many Japanese people will dress up in traditional Japanese clothing yukata (a summer kimono). Good seating and viewing spots are so competitive there is a lottery system for some festivals, and hundreds of thousands of people will attend. Here is the list of Tokyo Area Fireworks Festivals.
