Summer is nearing towards the end, which means no more summer festivals. However, it doesn’t meant that the festivities and events around Tokyo end here. With new change in season comes with autumn leaves and yearly favorite festivities such as Halloween. If you are still looking to go to fireworks festivals, I suggest you travel to south of Japan where more of those will be held in the autumn season. If you’re around Tokyo, here are my top picks to see for next month.
