Happy Woman Festa 2019

Free

A new but fast-growing and far-reaching collection of events held across Japan, this is part of a government initiative in Japan. Part of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals set in collaboration with the UN, this project is part of goal number 5. Aiming to have events in every prefecture by 25, it has 30 venues in 11 prefectures in 2019. Tokyo will be hosting three: one in Ginza, one in Ebisu and one in Futago-Tamagawa. The optional dress code is yellow which will provide a handy guide as to whether you’ve found the right place. There will be talks from leading women in Tokyo, ranging from chefs to athletes to top CEOs as well as award ceremonies and networking opportunities.

It’s important to note that these events are all in Japanese, so you’ll need a pretty good level of understanding to make the most of this. If you’re looking for something in English, check our guide to the best International Women’s Day Events in Tokyo for 2019.

Ginza’s event will take place on the 8th at Ginza Mitsukoshi (9th floor).
Ebisu’s event will run from the 8th – 10th at Yebisu Garden Place and Ebisu Mitsukoshi.
– Futako Tamagawa’s event has no confirmed location as of yet but will take place one the 8th.

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