Azabu-Juban Noryo Matsuri 2018
This traditional Japanese summer festival blends perfectly with its neighborhood’s cool and stylish atmosphere and is well-known for its delicious edible offerings. Azabu-Juban’s summer festival is known as Noryo Matsuri. “Noryo” can be roughly translated as “a cool summer night,” which is probably not the case in the peak of August heat, but at least there will be plenty of refreshments and shaved ice on hand! The trendy area’s bustling shopping street is closed off to vehicles during the event as local businesses set up stalls along the streets, offering typical matsuri goods and games in addition to mountains of food. There is also a stage area for live performances and a children’s plaza.
