Tokyo, being the largest city in the world, never has a shortage when it comes to things to do. Events are held all the time in so many different places. It can be super overwhelming if you are looking for a specific activity.

When it comes to events in February, Tokyo will be full of events regarding Valentine’s Day as well as winter illumination and strawberry buffets.

Valentine’s Day is without a doubt the center of focus when it comes to activities in February. It is the month of love and friendship, and many shops, restaurants, and cafes around the city will offer their original chocolate products as well as merchandise. Be sure to check these events before the 14th, because as soon as Valentine’s Day is over, all these events will end as well.

February is also the month when winter ends and spring begins. This means that all the winter events will be coming to their last days of showcasing. If you haven’t gone out to see the beautiful winter illuminations that are placed in various public locations, be sure to do it this month before they are gone.

Also, February is when you will see the most number of strawberry buffets at many hotels and restaurants across Tokyo. Strawberry season in Japan is between November and May, and many of these buffets are held between January and March. If you like sweets, then this may be a good chance to enjoy great desserts created by master pastry chefs at some of the fanciest hotels in the country.

Other than the above, February also has important national holidays such as ”National Foundation Day” and the Emperor’s birthday.

In this article, I will share with you our picks for the 10 best events in Tokyo in February 2024. I’m including events from different genres as well as locations throughout the City.

Born and raised in Costa Rica, I started living in Tokyo from college. I love traveling within Japan & around the world. Since I wasn’t born in Japan, I know the cultural impact that you can get when visiting Japan for the first time and what you might be worried about before your trip. And I’ve lived long enough to somewhat understand the nuances of the Japanese culture that make this country such an attractive place to visit. Hopefully I can provide to you both the information you’re looking for and the information you didn’t know you needed to know.
