Yanaka Matsuri

Photo by Greg Lane

The Yanaka Matsuri is a quaint community festival that takes places at venues throughout the neighborhood of Yanaka.

Venues include Ueno Sakuragi Atari (Yanaka Beer Hall and bakery), Yanaka Cemetery and the Former Yoshida Sake Store.

The festival includes dance and music performances, food, festival games, a bazaar and a stamp rally. If you’ve ever wondered what a Hula troupe performing in a graveyard might be like, this is your chance to find out.

For 2017, the main venue has moved to the more spacious Hatsune no Mori square so there might be less happening in the cemetery this year.
