How do I participate in Tokyo's many festivals?

Join Bonodori (Bon dance) in the summer time!

I was surprised and excited that there are a lot of festivals in Tokyo.

One of the summer festival called "bonodori"
The Bon dance is the Japanese traditional folk dance. The home coming for the souls of ancestors,

Join in the Bonodori is fun!

People go to their neighborhood bonodori. Lots of people wearing yukata (summer kimono) and dance around a stage.
You can join very easily and just enjoy dance and festival with local people.
Tourist office has a festival schedule so please check the schedule with them near you.
