Shinagawa Shukuba Matsuri

10:00am – 8:00pm
Free

The Shinagawa Shukuba Matsuri is a festival celebrating Shinagawa’s history as the first rest stop on the Tokaido heading south. The Tokaido was Japan’s main east-west route linking Edo (Tokyo) with Kyoto during the Edo period. Basically this is a fun excuse for the locals to put on fancy dress and pretend to be samurai, geisha, courtesans and other historical characters.

The festival will be happening on a Saturday and Sunday along a stretch of the ‘Old Tokaido’ (now a suburban street) between Shimbamba and Aomono Yokocho stations on the Keikyu Main Line.
