With the rainy season coming to an end, summer is officially here. However, this summer will be similar to last year’s, except for the Olympics, which will go ahead without any spectators on July 23.
While many museums and attractions in the city are now operating on reduced hours, the current state of emergency in Tokyo has put a stop to the usual summer festivities to help curb the spread of Covid-19.
Here we’ve compiled a list of festivals that are cancelled this year.
Hibiya Oedo Matsuri (Jul)
Hachioji Festival (Aug)
Asakusa Samba Carnival (Sep)
Tachikawa Fireworks Festival (Jul-Aug)
Chofu Fireworks Festival (Sep-Oct)
Adachi fireworks (Nov)
This list will be updated as more information becomes available.
