Moon Art Night Shimokitazawa

3:00pm – 9:00pm
Free

The whole of Shimokitazawa has gone moon-mad.

The hip neighborhood will celebrate the start of autumn and the Japanese tradition of tsukimi (moon viewing) by holding an art festival on its streets. You can expect powerful installations by 6 separate artists, including a gigantic moon and a fluffle of lit-up bunnies.

There will also be paintings at the gallery Shimokitazawa Arts and moon projections in the Bonus Track shopping area. Plus, panels, stamp rallies, NFTs, and limited-edition menus at local restaurants.

Where and when will the exhbition be held?

The main bunnies (by artist Amanda Parer) and moon installation (by Luke Jerram) will be held at the vacant lot in Shimokita Railroad Street from 15:00 to 21:00 (except for Sunday, September 18).

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