Celebrating 'Golden Week' in Tokyo with 1,000 Colorful 'Koinobori' Carp Streamers

Exciting Golden Week Related Festivals and Events (April 10– May 5) at TOKYO SKYTREE TOWN.

Japan celebrates Golden Week, a string of spring holidays, from April 10th's “Showa Day” to May 5 “Children’s Day.” This is a time for both locals and visitors to celebrate the mild, seasonal weather with festivals and events.  At TOKYO SKYTREE TOWN, at the base of TOKYO SKYTREE -- the tallest free-standing tower in the world -- some of the most exciting Golden Week experiences await.

The TOKYO SKYTREE TOWN® Carp Streamer Festival 2021 is being held April 12-May 9 in commemoration of Children’s Day, featuring about 1000 Koinobori or carp streamers, “swimming in the sky” – one of the largest such displays in Tokyo!

This festival is in cooperation with 3 cities, Kazo City in Saitama Pref, Tatebayashi City in Gunma Pref and Kato CIty in Hyogo Pref, famous for Koinobori production in Japan.

 

TOKYO SKYTREE TOWN “Picnic Park" will offer seasonal meals and attractions, April 10-25, 11 am to 7 pm at the 4th Floor Sky Arena. Also included are fluffy playsets to climb on (some for a fee), ideal for families with young children, and views of the Koinobori.
