[updated October 2023]

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”-marked 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 in early June, and recently was also held in mid-November. The event typically runs from 11:00am – 6:00pm on Saturday and Sunday.
