The 34th  Sumida River  Fireworks Festival has finally determined to be held on this Aug. 27th, announced by its Fireworks Festival steering committee on this 24th.


The fireworks festival had been held annually , and usually on  a weekend in the latter July, though  the project was postponed and has almost  suspended once, considering possible negative consequences due to the aftermath of the earthquake disaster in the East Region or Tohoku area in Japan.

The committee had long discussed if it might acquire consents and understanding of  people and expect their co-operation, prepare sufficient security conditions before it finally resolved to host the event this year.

The committee also announces it will invite the sufferers and refugees of the disaster and the nuclear accident, and  sales of the festival will be donated for  supportive activities for them.

This festival held in Sumida-ward in Tokyo has been quite popular ,  with about 20,000 fireworks shot off and  more than 900,000 spectators.  As it is so popular,  a lot of people are eager to watch the event even this year and have submitted requests to the committee despite  some similar events have been canselled to extend condolences to the sufferers and casualties and  voluntary restraint from pleasures.  Now, people passionately welcome the committee’s resolution though the date will be about one month later than usual.
