Shimokitazawa Summer Festival

Shimokitazawa is a tight but very welcoming community, so their summer festival draws in the locals as well as the many fans of the trendy neighborhood.

As is common with festivals of this type, the festival (literally) revolves around a yagura (festival tower) with kimono-clad bon dancers circling around the tower.

Other activities include suika-wari (bashing a watermelon while blindfolded), summer festival games and live music.
