Event List in Tokyo This Weekend (June 15 and 16, 2024)

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

Event List in Tokyo This Weekend2

Tokyo is such a massive city that there are always things to do or events happening everywhere. From art exhibitions, theatrical performances, and musical concerts to cultural festivals and seasonal food-related events, this is good because you can actively look for something to do. 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 simultaneously, many can pass by without you noticing, even if they’re events 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 Summer in Japan

Summer in Japan is, similar to other countries, the most eventful season of the year. Families and friends get together for events, activities, and trips. Some people love to take this opportunity to escape from the city and go to the beach or the mountains. Other people prefer staying in Tokyo and attending the many events that take place during summer.

Summer in Japan refers to mid-June through mid-September. Although the first two months tend to be rainy, exciting events such as matsuri and Fireworks festivals take place in July and August.

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. Other than this, Obon (お盆) takes place in either mid-August or July. Obon is a Buddhist festival that welcomes the spirits of your ancestors, and it is one of Japan’s most important holidays.

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.
