Furusato Festival Tokyo 2025

10:00am – 5:00pm

If you don’t have the time or money to go to awesome but far-flung regional matsuri (festivals), this is the event for you.

Note: While the weekend of March 9 to 10 has the most activities, the whole festival lasts from March 8 to 13.

What happens?

The Furusato Weekend 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 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 300 varieties on offer at the event, including local craft beers.

Schedule 2024

This year, there are plenty of free things to see and do around Tokyo Dome City: there will be workshops and displays inside Tokyo Dome Hotel, as well as a festival stage just outside on Crystal Avenue from 11 a.m. to around 5 p.m. This stage will include special dances from all over the country. See if you can also spot local mascots dressed up and rows of food vans.

On Monday, March 11 at 6:30 p.m. the public will be able to participate in the Gujo Odori dance.

The local goods market called Yoidore City is paid and takes place from March 8 to 13. Here you’ll be able to sample a host of Japanese alcohol and snacks.

Entry and tickets

Entry is free for most activities at the festival except for Yoidore City held in Prism Hall. It costs ¥3,700 and comes with ¥1,000 worth of food tickets that you can spend at the stalls.
