Songkran Festival – Hikarigaoka

Songkran is Thailand’s New Year festival which falls on the 13th, 14th & 15th of April in Thailand but will be celebrated on the 3rd and 4th of May – part of the Golden week national holidays – in Nerima’s Hikarigaoka park. In Thailand it marks the beginning of the rainy season and is mostly celebrated with boisterous water fights. There’s a strong chance it will be somewhat more restrained in Japan but expect food, drink and music to be available.

This Songkran celebration follows on from the one held in Yoyogi park.
