Asakusa Yabusame

This is a chance to watch yabusame, the impressive Japanese martial art of horse-mounted archery (it’s quite difficult to hit a target from a moving horse) in Asakusa. The 11:45 a.m. to 12:45 p.m. event is free to view, however, you need to purchase tickets to view the yabusame event from 1 p.m up close.

Earth Day Tokyo

All kinds of environment NPOs and charities you probably didn’t know existed in Tokyo will be recruiting and spreading their word at Earth Day Tokyo. There will also be plenty of eco-friendly businesses selling their products. Or you can just enjoy the free art, vibes, and music.

Tokyo Rainbow Pride

No matter your gender or sexual orientation, anyone can enjoy the parades and events. The parade follows an approximately 3 km route around the Harajuku/Shibuya area. And like any good Pride parade, participants march and ride on floats while dressed in outfits as diverse as the community itself.

Vegan Gourmet Festival Spring

Tokyo Vegan Gourmet Festival is a food festival dedicated to vegan cuisine and products. It is Japan’s biggest plant-based festival. It is held four times a year across Nagoya, Tokyo, and Kyoto. In Tokyo, it is held both in spring and autumn.

Craft Sake Week

120 sake breweries from across Japan will be serving original sake, some of which are limited edition. The event provides a great opportunity for those to learn more about the sake industry. There will also be 15 different restaurants — including some that are difficult to reserve — bringing signature dishes for you to enjoy alongside your sake.

Tokyo Skytree Taiwan Festival

This year, the festival is collaborating with the famous Ningxia Night Market to bring special dishes including fried squid and scallion oil cake. Taiwanese massages, fortune-telling, and lantern-making will also be happening.
