Chinese Spring Festival

Free

The Chinese New Year, or Lunar New Year, is more commonly referred to as the Spring Festival in China and celebrations take place over 15 days. There’s a variety of customs and celebrations throughout China and among the global Chinese diaspora, but each of the days has a special significance which you can read more about here. Of course, Festivities in Hong Kong or elsewhere in China are just a short airplane ride away, but you can celebrate the Chinese Spring Festival in Tokyo’s own Chukagai (Chinatown) in Yokohama – the largest Chinese community in Japan.

This February, Chukagai will be celebrating with firecrackers, music, and lion and dragon dances. The main events are as follows:

New Year’s Countdown at the Ma Zhu Miao, Shrine to the Goddess of the Sea, in Chinatown’s Yamashita-cho Park.

Chinatown Lion Dance

Celebration Parade

Traditional Performance Art

Lantern Festival
