Shibuya Summer Festival

2-day summer festival in Yoyogi park with free music, a bon odori

Bon odori, festival food and gigs by local heroes including former Pizzicato Five member Takao Tajima, Scha Dara Parr's Shinco and Charan-Po-Rantan vocalist Momo – the programme checks all the usual boxes at Shibuya's natsu matsuri, which moves from Miyashita to Yoyogi Park for its third edition. It starts from 4pm on both days, providing a pinch of relief from the steamy summer heat.

※Festival will be cancelled in case of heavy rain.
