New Year fireworks in Tokyo 2011/12/31 08:59
We wanted to see fireworks for New Year countdown. We're choosing between:

Ikebukuro Sunshine City

Happy Island Countdown at Yokohama Hakkeijima Sea Paradise


Which of these would be more festive, nicer fireworks, etc?

For later today? Do you have tickets to any of those? I don't know if they are available on the day at all.

I am not aware that Sunshine City will do any fireworks - isn't it more of a party with Japanese comedians/tallk show then counting down together with fire crackers?
Hakkeijima Sea Paradise seems to be also a party with comedians/talk show, with the aquarium open all night long, but yes with fireworks. Same-day tickets available at the Sea Paradise from 15:00.
Disneyland (reduced in scale this year, though) would be more festive, but it's not that you can just drop in on the day....

Sorry for the uncertain information, I hope someone else can follow up with more detailed info.

Thank you! We'll probably just climb Takao san then...
