I Love Ireland Festival and St. Patrick’s Day Parade 2024

10:00am – 6:00pm

St. Patrick’s Day in Tokyo is celebrated every year with the annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade that takes place along Omotesando Avenue.


The first part is an Irish cultural festival at Yoyogi Park Events Square on the weekend. It should include traditional music and dance performances, Irish sports (hurling, perhaps?), and an Irish gourmet booth where you can try Irish stout, stew, and steamed oysters.

In 2019, the event was entirely cashless — with plenty of support in setting up a card of your choice (nothing crazy – just use a Suica/Pasmo etc), including a machine to convert foreign currency to electronic yen. We’ll let you know the situation once more details are released.

The parade starts at 1 p.m. on March 12 and usually comes down the hill from Omotesando towards Meiji-jingumae Station on the Gyre/Dior Building side of the road and then does a U-turn at the Omotesando/Meiji Dori intersection before heading back up the Omotesando Hills side of the same street.

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