Whether you are travelling in the summer, spring or winter, Tokyo is endowed with exciting, electrifying, and mesmerising festivals! Every Tokyo festival commemorates something special. You must know of the delightful cherry blossom festivals. The entire city breathes fresh life, and blooms anew. Hues of pink swirl in the air, like little buds of cotton.
The auspicious Sanja Matsuri, Kanda Matsuri, Sanno Matsuri, and Ueno Sakura Matsuri are vibrant shrine celebrations. You must witness these parades, there is nothing quite like it. Tokyo also has a flourishing art scene, along with spectacular nightlife and gastronomical wonders. There are eclectic events in Tokyo that cater to these very specific needs.
You will be spoilt for choice, with so many festivals occurring simultaneously. We’ve put together a snapshot of some our favourites.
