UPDATE: Many events have been cancelled or postponed due to coronavirus. If you're unsure if yours has been affected, please call ahead to confirm.

Unless you have serious cedar pollen allergy, April is one of the nicest months in Tokyo: the weather is usually very agreeable, tasty festivals and other outdoor events abound, and there may even be a few cherry blossoms left on the trees here and there.

Make sure you don't miss out with our guide to the top events going on in Tokyo this April.
