At last, after two long years, Tokyo is getting back to life. Still not full power. Many of the annual festivals will be canceled this summer as well, but many will be held. Here is a list of some of the hottest Tokyo Summer Events 2022.
Jingu Gaien Fireworks Festival
Many of the fireworks festivals won’t happen this year. However, luckily for us, one of the most impressive and easily accessible festivals will! The festival is scheduled for August 8th. It can be watched from the Olympic stadium area for free. Or you can purchase tickets for the event and get comfortably seated and also enjoy a concert before the fireworks.
Mitama Festival at Yasukuni Shrine
Another happy news is that a very popular festival at Yasukuni shrine will be held on July 13-16, starting at 6 pm every night. It is popular for featuring 30,000 lanterns on the grounds of the shrine.
Shinjuku Eisa Festival
Eisa is a traditional dance that originated in Okinawa. The dance and costumes at this festival are quite different from other festivals. To see it yourself head to the Shinjuku East exit on July 30. The event will be held between 1 pm and 4 pm.
Midtown Summer 2022
Like every year, Tokyo Midtown in Roppongi will be holding a summer festival. This year the festival will be featuring CHANDON SECRET GARDEN MIDPARK LOUNGE and ASHIMIZU (bath for feet).
Tokyo Kaikan Ginza Sky Beer Terrace
One of the nicest beer gardens this year will be held at one of the most beautiful locations in Ginza from June 20th until September 9th. Here you can enjoy your drinks and the beautiful city view from 40 meters above. Different drinking menus are available. And not just beer, but also many cocktails, different kinds of wines, and highballs will be served.
