The extensive Toshima shopping arcade north of Oji Station is perhaps best known for this annual Tanabata celebration, which sees the entire 600m street decorated for the occasion. A variety of events will be taking place throughout early August, including Hawaiian dance performances and street markets, but the highlight is on August 6, when colourful samba parades (from 4pm and 6pm) lend some Brazilian flavour to the streets of Kita-ku.
