Meet the official festival character Happy chan and get down with the fine citizens of Tokyo’s closest ward to Chiba.
Not held since 2018 due to a typhoon in 2019 and then the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020 and 2021, 2022 is the earliest we can expect the next one.
There will be performances, a character show (involving a police character, from what we can tell), different sections including happy square, fresh square, friends square and the usual selection of delicious festival foods, local produce and probably a fire engine. The venue for the festival is the green expanse of Shinozaki Park – here’s a map of what’s to be found where on the day.To prevent the spread of COVID-19, many events have been canceled. Always check official sites before heading to an event.
