Jodoji is a temple in Akasaka in the shadow of the Biz Tower. This festival is one of the first summer festivals in the area and sees an interesting mix of residents and local office workers converging on the temple.
The festival is well attended so there are plenty of options for festival food and drink – as well as lots of taiko drumming and a “coal mine dance” free for all. While the dates are yet to be confirmed, it is likely to take place on the 27th and 28th of July.
The temple is on the left about 100m along Hitotsugidori from Exit 1 of Akasaka Station.
