Event List in Tokyo This Weekend (March 4 & 5, 2023)

The best events, activities, and exhibitions held this weekend in Tokyo

Event List in Tokyo This Weekend

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 Winter in Japan

One thing you will notice if you live in Japan for a while is that there are going to be a lot of illumination events throughout winter in Japan. Many of these illumination events have to do with Christmas, but not necessarily all of them. This has become a thing in Japan because of the way Christmas is perceived in Japan.

In Japan, Christmas has very little connotations with Christianity or religion, but it is more of a special day to spend with that special person in your life. It has a similar vibe to that of valentines day, but with more decorations and illuminations. Therefore, you will see many Christmas markets around Tokyo as well as Christmas trees decorated in plazas or in shopping malls. The idea of decorating your house with Christmas-related things and buying presents for your partner (or friends and family) is what makes it popular here. And outdoor illuminations are a part of this.

These outdoor illuminations can be seen in many places across Tokyo, and they seem to get bigger and fancier every year. So if you are in Tokyo during this season, this is something you should definitely check out!

Now that you know a little bit about winter-related Japanese culture, here is the event list in Tokyo this weekend (March 4 & 5, 2023).
