As it is a big festival, a lot of people come to watch. It will be very crowded this year too, but totally worth it. Most recommended spot to watch is Shinozaki Ryokuchi or Shinozaki Park, where you can sit and enjoy the fireworks very closely. Make sure go there by around 5pm so you can get a good spot to watch.
