It’s now midst of hot summer!
At the end of summer, in Azabu-Juban, near Roppongi, there is a Summer Festival!
It is called ‘Noryo-Matsuri’ in Japanese. ‘Noryo （納涼）’ means ‘Cool down the summer’ and ‘Matsuri’ means ‘festival’.
During the evening time of 25th and 26th of August, there will be so many of events in Azabu-Juban area, such as food and drink stands, play and toy stalls for kids, music event on a stage, traditional festival music play at Azabujuban Shrine, etc.
Entering the Matsuri space is free! You’ll be able to enjoy watching and even participating in traditional and popular summer festival.
During these 2 days, Asa no Ha, the Tenugui (traditional hand-dyed cloth) shop, will offer you a special service of your own named Tenugui.
You can order to print your name on Tenugui purchased at the shop—free of charge! Usually printing costs JPY1,404, so this is a special offer only during this period.
The name print is in Japanese, so please ask to ‘translate’ your name in Japanese characters (Hiragana, Katakana or Kanji).
Let’s go and enjoy Japanese traditional summer festival—Matsuri!
