When: 03/05/14 - 04/05/14: All Day
Where: Yoyogi Park Event Space, 2-1 Yoyogi Kamizounocho
If you’ve picked the stress-free option and decided to stick around Tokyo during Golden Week, this festival may be the closest thing to a vacation without having to leave: Tex-Mex food (and we know how difficult good Mexican good is to find around Japan!) and samba and Mariachi groups are awaiting you. But, what exactly is Cinco de Mayo? The holiday takes place on the fifth day of May in the United States, and regionally in Mexico, to celebrate Mexican heritage and pride. It originated in Mexican communities in the American West back in the days of the Civil War, as a way to commemorate the cause of freedom and democracy. Nowadays, it’s a chance to learn a bit more about the culture of Mexico, and in the case of this Yoyogi Park edition, about other Central and South American nations.
