Nikuon

11:00am – 7:00pm
Free

Meat meets music at this unique fusion festival in eastern Tokyo. Nikuon, from the Japanese niku meaning meat, is an event showcasing some of Tokyo’s most innovative musicians and meals.

What to expect

Nikuon has two main elements — the meats and the beats. Live performances on the sound stages serve the latter. Performers include R&B band Neighbors Complain, jazz punk group These Three Words, and vocalist Takeyoshi Sato.

Keep yourself going through the beats with some of Tokyo’s best meaty snacks. Restaurants from all over the city have stalls selling meat dishes — think Japanese classics such as yakitori and fried chicken, as well as kebabs and Philly cheesesteaks.

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