Japan summers are full of activities. In July, there are fireworks all over Japan. My favorite would be the one in Showa Kinen.
Flowers are a-bloom.
Bon odori and Awadori Festivals are celebrated everywhere in August and September.
Since these festivals are hard to track, the best way to catch one is to head towards Yoyogi Park on a weekend. They have food stalls and all sorts of activities depending on the theme.
Chicken wings coz we love’em wings regardless of origin
But it doesn’t matter…because, we already ordered a Double Fromage to celebrate a birthday!
Check out the link to see their scheduled themes.
You don’t need the whole day there. Head towards the main park. Or go to Meiji Jingu, Harajuku, and Omotesando. NHK also has a museum (great for kids).
