Cinco de Mayo

Things to do
Cinco de Mayo

Held annually in the US to commemorate Mexico's historic victory over France at the Battle of Puebla in 1862, the Cinco de Mayo Festival will be heading to Tokyo again. Bizarrely enough, even though May 5 is actually on a weekend this year, they've decided to push festivities back a week. Returning to Odaiba for 2018, the two-day festival will again feature the familiar mariachi bands, salsa dancers, tequila bars and Tex-Mex food stands, complemented by non-Mexican gourmet and music contributions from Central and South American countries – a wonderfully wacky mix of influences, in other words.
