For the ultimate summer weekend look no further than the Citta’ Summer Festival 2019 taking place at La Cittadella—a mega shopping and entertainment center in Kawasaki.
New this year is the highly anticipated Citta’ Night Market. Night markets, popularized in Asia, have recently become a world-wide trend that brings together cuisine, culture and community. Try international and domestic dishes, both savory and sweet, like grilled squid, corn on the cob, kakigori (flavored shaved ice), pizza and more. There’s a slew of options to suit any palate!
Pair the market with live, energetic performances and you’ll entertained from the moment you join the crowds. Enjoy the likes of Japanese drums and shamisen, dances and traditional performances. And don’t miss the mikoshi parade where 100 participants carry portable shrines while singing and dancing though the venue—a Japanese summertime favorite where everyone is encouraged to join in on the fun.
Be sure to check out the art installations too. Of note are the beautifully carved bamboo illuminations, which set the scene for a perfect summer evening.
Got tots? Bring them along as there will be kids entertainment and games as well.
