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.

Due to COVID-19, the festivities this year will be significantly scaled back. The main event of celebration wil the the Objet Lantern Pavilion in Yamashita Park.
