Nihonbashi-Kyobashi Matsuri

The main part of this festival is the parade that takes place along Chuo Dori – one of Tokyo’s busiest thoroughfares.

As the “mile zero” point from which all distances are measured from Tokyo to places around Japan, it’s only appropriate that this festival should feature snippets from regional festivals that take place throughout Japan. The parade will feature 3,000 dancers and performers.

There will also be 60 yatai serving festival favourites from chocolate dipped bananas to yaki soba as well as a market at which you can buy regional delicacies not usually available in Tokyo.
