Tokyo events for Monday, September 30 to Sunday, October 6, 2019
This week, try delicious Hokkaido cuisine in the heart of Tokyo, catch the fireworks in Tamagawa or join a horror-themed street race.
Hokkaido Fair in Yoyogi
You need not leave Tokyo to savor all the gastronomical goodies that Hokkaido—Japan’s northernmost prefecture—has to offer (including crab, salmon roe, Hokkaido-style ramen and much more). The Hokkaido Fair is four-day food fest at Yoyogi Park with cheapo savings if you get there early.
Japanese Tea Party with Koto Performance
A chance to see a live performace of the koto—a traditional stringed Japanese instrument. Takes place in the perfect venue too: a four-decade-old green tea shop and cafe.
Tamagawa Fireworks Festival
This is the biggest fireworks festival in the Setagaya area (west Tokyo). It’s a popular one, so be sure to get there early to snag some prime seat space!
Journey to the End of the Night: Horror Edition
Looking for a bit of unconventional fun? How about a mad dash through the streets of Tokyo as you evade pursuers and solve creative challenges along the way. This edition has a “horror” theme, making it a good primer for Halloween!
