Koenji Awa Odori Festival

5:00pm – 8:00pm
¥2,000 – ¥5,500

Usually taking place outdoors on the closed-off streets of Koenji, the 2022 version has been severely curtailed due to self-imposed COVID-19 restrictions by the organizers.

The festival originates in the prefecture of Tokushima at the north end of the island of Shikoku. Unlike the Koenji event, the Tokushima Awa-odori Festival is reportedly going ahead more or less as usual.

Instead of processions on the street, the organizers have opted for two halls in Za Kōenji, so all performances will be indoors. Admission to the venues will be ticketed.

Organizers may cancel events, alter schedules, or change admission requirements without notice. Always check official sites before heading to an event.
