Furusato Festival Tokyo

10:00am – 9:00pm
¥1,200 – ¥1,800

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, there will be no in-person Furusato Festival in 2021. There will be something happening online though.

If you don’t have the time or money to go to those awesome but far-flung regional festivals, this is the event for you. The Furusato Matsuri Tokyo promises to gather all the unique entertainment, best local delicacies and finest beverages from around Japan and hand them to you in the convenience of Tokyo Dome City.

Stroll all the way from Hokkaido to Okinawa in a matter of minutes and sample everything from scallops to manju filled with slabs of fatty tuna. You can wash it down with plenty of booze—there are more than 100 varieties on offer at the event, including local craft beers.

Weekday tickets are cheaper ¥1,200 in advance and ¥1,400 on the day. Weekend tickets cost ¥1,600 in advance and ¥1,800 on the door. There are also evening tickets available for ¥1,300 which allow entry after 4pm. If you would like to attend multiple days, a pass might be best, costing ¥4,500. For foodies, there is a donburi ticket which allows entry plus tickets for the National Donburi Championship.

Good to know: The festival closes at 6pm on the last day.

To prevent the spread of COVID-19, many events have been canceled. Always check official sites before heading to an event.
