Feel like getting a taste of traditional Japanese food, culture and performing arts? Head to Hibiya Park‘s Fountain Court for the new Hibiya Oedo Matsuri, part of the city’s run-up preparations for the 2020 Olympics.
This festival aims to meld to old-school and the new: traditional Japanese mikoshi (portable shrine) parades, musical performances and traditional arts and crafts jostle alongside gourmet food stalls, craft stalls, and game kiosks.
The festival runs from mid-morning to late evenings, and offers something for everyone, from craft beer and croquettes for starving parents to little ones longing for a haul of kakigori and cotton candy. The stage shows promise excitement long into the early-summer night.Organizers may cancel events, alter schedules, or change admission requirements without notice. Always check official sites before heading to an event.
