Experience Tokyo

001 Shimokita Tengu Matsuri - Jan. 29, 2011

———————————-

The Shimokita Tengu Matsuri is a small festival that I’ve been meaning to check out.
There’s supposed to be a parade of children and men wearing tengu masks (long nosed red masks) and Mamemaki (Bean throwing). It’s not a major festival and most people in Tokyo probably don’t even know about it.
Let’s meetup at Shimokitazawa Station at 13:00 and watch the children’s parade, follow them to the temple and catch the main parade and mamemaki.
We should have some time to peek into the shops. Then we can all grab an early dinner and drinks at one of Shimokita’s numerous eateries.
(Shimokitazawa is famous for its reasonable and sometimes funky boutiques and restaurants.)
