Tokyo Rainbow Pride celebrates Tokyo’s LGBT community. No matter your gender or sexual orientation, anyone can enjoy the parades and events held across three days. These include performances and booths in Yoyogi Park for LGBT-friendly businesses as well as the annual parade.
The parade follows an approximately 3km route around the Harajuku/Shibuya area. And like any good Pride parade, participants march and ride on floats while dressed in outfits as diverse as the community itself. If you’ve never celebrated Pride in Japan, here’s your annual opportunity.
This year, the parade will begin at 1pm on April 24th.
