Tanabata in Asagaya (Pearl Center Shopping Arcade)

  • Pearl Shopping Arcade Suginami-ku, Tōkyō-to, 166-0004 Japan (map)

Tanabata returns to the Pearl Center Shopping Arcade in Asagaya, Suginami ward.  Many places celebrate the festival in July, but this is one place where they celebrate it according to the old calendar.  The long arcade is decorated with paper mache characters from real life, animation through to fantasy characters. It’s a great way to spend an afternoon and do some shopping while you’re at it!
