[updated October 2020]

Now running annually for over a decade, Chasampo, or the “Tea Walk”, is a cultural town walking event in Nishi-Ogikubo with more than 100 various shops participating. You can drink tea in the “Chasampo” shops and receive a variety of privileges in “Chasampo drinking and service” shops. Just look for the participating tea kettle mark. You will find many kettles in front of shops during the event in Nishi-Ogikubo. These will guide you to Chasampo shops and lead the way. Workshops, exhibitions, special sales and more are available for a variety of ways to explore this unique community. Enjoy strolling through Nishi-Ogikubo!

*Nishi-Ogikubo Chasampo is usually held on the first weekend of June, but this year as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic it has been postponed until late the fall. In 2020 the event will be held on Saturday and Sunday, October 31st – November 1st. Please note that tea will not be offered this year, but strolling from shop to shop is still welcome.
