Come New Year's Eve, Tokyo is usually filled with incredible parties and countdown celebrations. Thanks to Covid-19, things are a little muted, but that doesn't mean there's nothing to do. Tokyo is still hosting some concerts, club nights and parties over New Year's Eve.
While New Year’s Day in Japan, called shogatsu, is normally a quiet holiday dedicated to family time, New Year's Eve in Tokyo is anything but. So spend Saturday December 31 2022 like a Tokyoite by heading to a countdown party, sipping creamy amazake at a temple, and getting up early to catch the first sunrise of the new year.
Here's to an amazing 2023!
