The Tokyo Jazz Festival takes place at few venues across the city, some of which are paid, but the free gigs can be found at Yoyogi Park. And we like free. The festival will feature artists, both seasoned professionals and up-and-comers. Makes a great day/evening out for music lovers, families or those looking for a chill-out activity.
Festival locations: Around Exit 13 of Shibuya Station; NHK Hall (tickets required); and Yoyogi Park’s Keyaki Street (Access: Harajuku or Meiji-jingumae Station)
