Jiyugaoka Megami Matsuri

Free

Also known as the Goddess Festival, this annual event held in the area around Jiyugaoka Station was established in 1973—and attracts nearly half a million visitors. There are wine and food stands with fall specialties, and vendors galore to go along with the wide variety of musical performances.

The Megami Matsuri runs from around noon to late. Surrounding roads are closed to cars, making this a pedestrian’s heaven, and it’s great fun for kids. The venues are a short walk from Okasuwa Station, and literally right outside Jiyugaoka Station. While you’re in the Jiyugaoka area, also check out the fashion stores, patisseries, and the Italianate architecture of the La Vita outdoor shopping complex.

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