Tokyo Rainbow Pride celebrates Tokyo’s LGBT community. No matter your gender or sexual orientation, anyone can enjoy the more than 60 events held throughout the week. These include a performance and booths in Yoyogi Park for LGBT-friendly businesses. Finally, Rainbow Week finishes off with the highlight of any Pride event: a parade on May 6th at noon.
The Tokyo version is an approximately 3 km march around the Harajuku/Shibuya area. 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.
