Asagaya Jazz Streets 2013

School gymnasiums, churches, office lobbies, coffee shops and shrines are all considered fair game for a spot of music during Asagaya Jazz Streets, a two-day festival in which concerts are held at over 40 locations scattered around the neighborhood. The event has been slowly growing in stature since it started in 1995. Internationally renowned trumpeter Terumasa Hino brings his H factor group to Shinmeigu Shrine for the main event, while concerts by the likes of the Kazumi Tateishi Trio (performing 'Ghibli meets Jazz') are sure to draw big crowds. Note that while the open-air gigs are free, you'll need a paid wristband to get into most of the participating venues, while a drink or food order is required at the shows held in cafes and restaurants.
