Asakusa Samba Carnival 2018
This summer marks the Asakusa Samba Carnival Parade Contest’s 37th year, celebrating Brazil’s rich links with Japan and the exciting world of samba. The popular annual event is both a lively parade and a serious dance contest with 18 teams from across Tokyo (and beyond) competing to impress the judges and take home the title as they entertain the crowds. Expect dazzling costumes, sequins, feathers, and plenty of shimmying and shaking to the samba rhythms blasting out along Kaminarimon Dori.
