You can see an impressive float and performances of diverse regional Japanese festivals!

Normally used for baseball games and concerts, Tokyo Dome provides much space for shops and booths. Plan at least 3 hours on site and favour weekdays to avoid big crowds. Everything is in Japanese but that is not a problem for foreign tourists 🙂

If you are a tourism professional on business trip, you can get travel news, try regional food from all over Japan, meet shopkeepers and exchange business cards. Our travel agency being near Tokyo Dome, one of our travel agents will definitely attend this cool event!
