Bake Neko (Supernatural Cat) Festival

10:00am – 5:00pm
¥500

Taking place on the main street of Kagurazaka, this is a Halloween parade with a difference — you must be dressed as a cat. That (and ¥500) are the only requirements — participation is open to all.

The reasoning is that the area was (near) the home of the cat from the Natsume Soseki novel “I am a Cat” and apparently people like cats. So put on your best creepy Cats™ make-up and faux fur for a prowl around Kagurazaka.

This coincides with the Kagurazaka Town Jump Festa, which also sees a garçon (waiters’) race on the same day.
