While the majority of people in Japan still wear masks, finally we are able to hold events again. It has been too long! This November, if you come to Tokyo you can enjoy the following events in Suginami: Ogikubo Music Festival for a celebration of Ogikubo’s classical music around the town, Trolls in the Park for an outdoor art exhibition throughout the month, Suginami Festa for a weekend family-fun celebration of food and performances, and Asagaya Nomiya Festival, where you can get special deals to go bar-hopping around the area.
Suginami’s famous representative October events, Asagaya Jazz Streets and Koenji Fest, will be held back to their usual scale this year. Please check their respective pages for more information.
