Event List in Tokyo This Weekend (October 29 & 30, 2022)

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 Autumn

One thing you will notice if you live in Japan for a while is that there are going to be more events than usual during autumn. This is because autumn is considered in Japanese culture to be the perfect season to get in touch with culture. The temperature outside is neither too hot nor too cold, and there are many seasonal foods that can be enjoyed only during this season.

Because of this, many cultural events will be held during autumn. Traditional Japanese Matsuri festivals, events concerning watching the red and yellow leaves of autumn, and events where you can enjoy seasonal foods and drinks. Not only Japanese traditional events, but also international events such as Oktoberfest are held in many parts of Tokyo during autumn.

Since the temperature outside is just perfect, many of these events will be held outdoors. Yoyogi Park, Hibiya Park, Inokashira Park, and Ueno Park are just some of the few places that constantly held events during this season. You will also see many events held on shopping streets (商店街) or near Shito Shrines and Buddhist Temples.

There are also seasonal flowers such as Cosmos and roses which can be seen at some parks or botanical gardens around the city. Talking about seasonal things, there are so many delicious seasonal foods such as chestnuts, sweet potatoes, persimmon, and pacific saury among others. You will see many special “limited time” menus at restaurants using these seasonal ingredients, so be sure to not miss these!

Now that you know a little bit about autumn-related Japanese culture, here is the event list in Tokyo this weekend (October 29 and 30, 2022).
