Walk the Town Following the Tea Kettles!
[updated June 2021]

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, and this year in light of the COVID-19 pandemic the event is instead called “Nishiogi Sampo” (Nishi-Ogikubo Walk), keeping the town exploration and various offers intact while cancelling the free servings of tea for safety purposes. June 5 & 6, 2021, 11:00AM – 6:00PM.

**Please enjoy safely by wearing masks, using hand sanitizer, and keeping social distance.**
