Harajuku Kawaii!! Fes 2014

Free

If you don’t have enough pink in your life, this is the event for you. As well as featuring lots of that harajuku style that you’ve either come to love or hate, there will be copious amounts of live music – including a performance from the undisputed Queen of Kawaii, Kyary Pamyu Pamyu.

Entry to all parts of the three day event are free – but only if you pre-register on the official site. Although much of the site has English along with the Japanese, that doesn’t include the pre-registration part of the site. If your Japanese isn’t up to the task, call the organizers on 03-3470-0140 to complain.

Last year drew a crowd of 10,000 so be prepared to get squeezy in those narrow Harajuku side streets.

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