Event List in Tokyo This Weekend (March 18 & 19, 2023)
The best events, activities, and exhibitions held this weekend in Tokyo
Tokyo is such a massive city, there are always things to do or events happening everywhere, all the time. From art exhibitions, theatrical performances, and musical concerts to cultural festivals and seasonal food-related events. This is good in the sense that you can actively look for something to do, and whatever that is that you’re looking for, there’s a good chance you’ll find it.
However, because there are so many events happening at the same time, many of these can pass by without you noticing, even if it’s an event you’d be very interested in. This is especially true during the weekends when there are more events than usual.
That’s where this article will hopefully come in handy. I have created a list of events for this week in Tokyo. If you live in Tokyo and have some free time, or if you happen to be visiting Tokyo during this week, then I hope at least one of these events will interest you to check it out.
Events during Spring in Japan
Spring is regarded in Japan as the season of “Goodbyes and new encounters”. March is when students graduate and April is when the new scholar year begins. April is also when the freshly graduated start working their first jobs.
What most people will think about Japan in spring is without a doubt “cherry blossoms”. Visitors from all around the world come to Japan to experience firsthand the Hanami season.
Other flowers are also popular such as plum blossoms and wisterias.
When it comes to Japanese traditional events, there is Hinamatsuri (ひな祭り) and Shunbun no Hi (春分の日) in March. And there is also Golden week which takes place between late April and early May. Golden week is a combination of holidays such as Showa no Hi (昭和の日), Constitution day (憲法記念日), Greenery Day (みどりの日), and Children’s day (こどもの日).
Now that you know a little bit about Spring-related Japanese culture, here is the event list in Tokyo this weekend (March 18 & 19, 2023).
