Event List in Tokyo This Week (June 10 to 16, 2024)

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

Event List in Tokyo This Week2

In Japan, people tend to say autumn is the perfect season to connect with culture, such as literature, art, food, etc. Because of this, it is also a season when you’ll see many cultural events across Japan, especially in Tokyo.

Tokyo, being such a large city, has many events happening simultaneously. Because of this, it might be difficult to keep track of events that you’d be interested in. These range from art exhibitions, theatrical performances, and musical concerts to cultural festivals and seasonal food-related events. Some of these events are just a couple of days long.

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.

Summer culture in Japan

Before going to the list, let me explain summer events in Japan to you a little bit. When we talk about Summer, we usually refer to mid-June through mid-September. Summer is when you will see the most number of events happening around Tokyo. This is primarily due to the fact that summer vacations are the most extended vacation for people attending school. It is the season when families and friends get together for activities and trips.

When it comes to Japanese traditional events, there is Marine Day (海の日) and Japanese Summer Star Festival (七夕) in July, Mountain Day (山の日) in August, and Respect for the Aged Day (敬老の日) in September. Besides this, there is also Obon (お盆), which occurs in either mid-August or July. Obon is the Buddhist festival that welcomes the spirits of your ancestors and is one of the most important holidays in Japan.

Summer is also when you will see many festivals such as Omatsuri and fireworks festivals.

Here are some articles about things to do during Summer in Japan.

Greetings to all mommies I am a supermom from Philippines. Previously, I worked and lived in Dubai for seven years, until 2015 the year I  moved in Japan. Currently, I am happily settled here with my Japanese husband and our 7 months old baby. I could only describe my almost 6 years of living here as a roller coaster ride more so, after I gave birth to my son. Japan had changed me in ways unimaginable. It has influence my lifestyle, my perceptions and beliefs. I was able to witness firsthand the pros and cons of living in the country. From their  language, culture and ethnicity, the people, place and in work. Those years were enough to give me quite personal and memorable experiences which I would be more than delighted to share with you.
