Tokyo events for Monday, November 7 to Sunday, November 13, 2022
Predictions say that the autumn leaves for Tokyo (well, Mount Takao) will start getting their brilliant red color from mid-November. So while you’re out enjoying the new foliage, why not drop by some chrysanthemum festivals, markets, or any other of these event.
Farmers and Kids Festa 2022
This event lets parents pass that tricky “Where does food come from?” question onto real farmers, who will hold educational seminars on agriculture for kids. In addition, there will be an array of food options available and various farm animals to befriend.
Snow Bank Pay it Forward
Ready for snow in Tokyo? A slope of the white stuff and a rail will be set up at Yoyogi Park where you can snowboard and sled. There will also be food, music, and a skateboarding ramp if you’re just not ready for snow to be in your life yet. This event is partnered with Red Cross to raise awareness about becoming a bone marrow donor, hence the “Pay It Forward” part of the name.
What better way to celebrate Cheese Day in Japan (Nov 11) than with a cheese-tasting event? EBiS303, an event hall in Ebisu, will host the festa where you can try various domestic and international varieties of the stinky stuff over the weekend. Pre-registration required.
