53rd Annual Koenji Awaodori
This year sees Koenji Awaodori see out the month of August with a bang.
To be held on the last weekend: 29/30 August.
It's held over two days.
Officially states from 6-9pm, but that's just for the actual singing and dancing.
Good to get in to Koenji before that to beat the masses and get a good spot.
There's also a few more things going on, like a Mikoshi parade.
Drinking starts early and the daytime is a good chance for pics as performers are walking the streets fully-clothed up ready for the evening.
Recommend checking out some of the back streets as you can get close up to the action and the drums are deafening.
