Yōga Summer Festival 2023

3:00pm – 8:30pm

No, this festival isn’t celebrating the bendy, spiritual exercise of Yoga but the neighborhood in Setagaya.

For the first time since 2019, this local, student-led festival will once again celebrate the community of Yōga at Yōga Kusunoki Park.

This year the Yōga Summer Festival’s theme will be “retro”, and organizers will celebrate both old and young residents by bringing the past into modern times. This will be reflected in the food, shows, and workshops on offer.

What can I eat?

You won’t be disappointed. There will be many stalls serving traditional and unique dishes, such as hashimaki, a festival snack from Kansai; barayaki, grilled beef from Aomori; yakisoba, yakitori, and shaved ice. Don’t miss the bar that will serve cream soda with an alcoholic kick.

What can I see and do?

On the stage, people of all ages will sing and dance, and on Saturday there will be a fashion show. Crafts will be sold and plenty of children’s games set up.

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