Japanese Festivals 2017 - 2018 Calendar

The Japanese Festival Scene

Japanese culture is about as colorful as the biggest box of crayons on the market. Not only does Japan have a deluge of festivals celebrating their own culture and history, but major cities across the world that have been strongly influenced by Japan also host festivals that honor the ways of the gorgeous country in Asia. Whether it involves nestling up to a bowl of warm tonkotsu ramen, watching a Japanese folk dance, listening to modern Japanese music or looking at artwork, these festivals are ideal for memory making. Check out all the Japanese festivals above and get out there!
