Tsukiji Honganji Bon Dance Festival
Dance to the beat of the taiko drums — or just watch — at this annual Bon dance festival at Tsukiji Honganji Temple.
As a bonus of being so close to the gourmet hot spots of Tsukiji Market and Ginza, there will be various restaurants with stalls selling better-than-average festival fare.
The dancing gets underway after sunset from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. on all days except the last (Aug. 5), where it will take place from 6 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
Organizers may cancel events, alter schedules, or change admission requirements without notice. Always check official sites before heading to an event.
