Instead, you may enjoy fire works from below listed hotels or ryokans. Stay calm in safe place while dipping in the most beautiful night in Japan. But please understand, not all guest rooms are facing to fire works. You need to make sure with the accommodation that you want to stay in a room with fire works view. Or perhaps, it’d be a good idea to ask the hotel or ryokan if they themselves recommend to see hanabi from their venue.
Hanabi fans start planning and booking the hotels from April or May as soon as their favourite hanabis are announced its schedule. But for you the traveler, be aware of any change of the schedule, by wether or whatever.
