Haisai Festa

Things to do

Golden Week is one of Japan's peak periods for travelling, but you can save money on airfares by heading to one of the many cultural festivals held in Tokyo and the surrounding area. While the capital's parks host most of these events, Kawasaki's La Cittadella takes a trip to Okinawa every year, with five days of food, music and dance from Japan's southernmost prefecture. Look out for eisa dancing, stalls selling Okinawan soba, mango kakigori and Orion beer, live music by Okinawan performers and workshops on traditional crafts and instruments. 

Meanwhile, neighbouring Club Citta hosts a full-scale Okinawan music festival – click here for more details.
