Shimokitazawa is a tight but very welcoming community, so this festival (formerly known as the Shimokitazawa 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.
There are plenty of refreshment options at the festival site, but festival type food is very limited in availability. Luckily you’re in the gourmet paradise of Shimokitazawa, so tasty nourishment is always close at hand.
Other activities include summer festival games and live music.
