Ueno Summer Festival


The Ueno Natsu Matsuri (summer festival) usually consists of various events and festivities over an approximately five-week-long period beginning in mid-July but this return-from-COVID event has been shortened to 3 days. Past festivals have included a paper lantern floating festival, an antiques market and an ice sculpture display.

Usually there is a major parade with dancing teams on either a Saturday or Sunday along a 500m stretch of Chuo Dori starting from Ueno Park. However, as of June 23rd, 2022, there is no indication whether this will take place or not. Given most event organizers’ aversion to large crowds, our money is on the parade being canceled.

To prevent the spread of COVID-19, many events have been canceled. Always check official sites before heading to an event.
