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.
