Kagurazaka Matsuri

7:00pm – 9:00pm
Free

This is the biggest summer festival of the year in the trendy neighborhood of Kagurazaka.

The first two days of the festival (Wed-Thu) consist of a Hozugi Market (the seeds of the winter cherry are sold for ceremonial purposes at this time of year for Obon). The second half of the festival (Fri-Sat) is an Awaodori Festival in which participants perform the fluid and graceful dance that originated in Tokushima Prefecture. There will be yatai (outdoor festival food stalls) present for all four days.

The festival will take place on Kagurazaka Dori—the main shopping street of this lovely Tokyo neighborhood.

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