The pleasant autumn weather in Tokyo may be perfect for food gatherings, sports events and other outdoor fun, but artistic and cultural happenings are just as much a part of the season as are beer festivals and baseball playoff games. Just like last month, we've dug through the heaps of exhibitions, art fairs, performances and concerts to bring you our top picks for artsy fun in Tokyo this November.

Highlights for this month include a contemporary reimagining of ritualistic dengaku folk dancing and music and a celebration of the traditional arts in the picturesque surrounds of Kagurazaka, but you'll also want to catch this fresh take on Shakespeare's 'Richard III', see works by an avantgarde-minded graphic designer and discover how Japanese crafts have evolved in the postwar era.
