Where: Around Kagurazaka, Kagurazaka

The picturesque streets of old-town Kagurazaka once again come alive with music, art and costume for 2015’s Kagurazaka Street Stage O-edo Tour. The town started as a residential district for samurai before developing into a district of performing arts that flourished throughout the Edo period (1603-1867). Head down to the area this weekend to see the street art and music of the past return home.

The festival will feature a nighttime parade of floats, flutes and shamisen around the quaint little alleys on the eve of the main event. The main festival sees the streets burst with the sound of live music performances, traditional parlor games, “rakuza” storytelling and much, much more. Kagurazaka Street Stage O-edo Tour provides an authentic taste of the art and culture of Old Japan.
