Tokyo Koenji Awa Odori 2024

Tokyo's best summer dance festival

Venue: Koenji When: Late Aug 2024

If you're in Tokyo at the end of August, make sure you save some time to see the Koenji Awa-Odori. Over 12,000 dancers in 180 groups perform in the streets of Koenji and more than a million revellers gather over the weekend to join in the party, usually from 5pm to 8pm.

Nine routes are planned for the dancers, so make sure you pick up a map and a fan which are handed out, stock up on food and drink at one of the several stalls and get a good vantage point to enjoy the show.

I'd like to watch it, but maybe participating is more fun! I enjoyed watching Kagurazaka Matsuri in July this year.
