Dance Throughout the Night

Shimokitazawa’s annual summer festival is back, bringing dancing and taiko drumming to the area, along with a big dose of festive spirit. Enjoy dancing around the yagura (festival tower) near the East Exit of Shimokitazawa Station, copying the traditional moves from the participating dancers. Come wearing a yukata and soak up the festival vibes, drinking with the locals.

For those who can’t make the Obon event, head over the following week for more fun and summer dancing.
