Ebisu Bon Odori Festival
★ Staff recommendation
One of central Tokyo’s biggest but least-known ‘Bon’ dance festivals.
The area around the bus rotary on the west side of JR Ebisu Station is transformed into a giant yukata-clad dance circle around the lantern strewn yagura at the center.
Festivities on both days begin at 6 p.m., when the sun has descended behind the station and the air starts to cool.
Organizers may cancel events, alter schedules, or change admission requirements without notice. Always check official sites before heading to an event.
- 57 m from Ebisu Station Hibiya Line (H2)Yamanote Line (JY21)
- 0.6 km from Daikanyama Station Tōkyū Tōyoko Line (TY2)
Typical weather at this time:
High: 33 ºC
