Shimokitazawa’s Ichibancho shopping district comes to life in mid August as the local Awa Odori festival parades through the streets.

Awa Odori is a traditional dance festival made up of many groups of choreographed dancers. It’s a chance to see participants donning traditional Obon outfits, singing, chanting and dancing throughout the neighborhood—a summertime classic!
