Kawagoe Remix 2017 from the official website

Kawagoe Remix 2017 from the official website

Kawagoe Remix – A couple of years ago we serendipitously visited this festival on the main tourist street, Ichibangai, in Kawagoe. The festival is a mix of art, music and food appreciation. In previous years Ichibangai was pedestrianised for the days of the festival. However, in previous years the festival was only for 2 days: Saturday and Sunday. This year the festival is four days long for the first time. The area will be pedestrianised on the weekend as some of the light installations and some art are displayed in the centre of the street and in the rest areas. They turn the lights on in the installations from 5 pm. They have live music throughout the day and night in various locations in the area. A number of restaurants participate in the Kawagoe Remix food fair discount booklet. You can purchase a booklet of tickets that allows you discounted meals in participating restaurants.

The layout for the live music has also changed. Last year there were many different areas with different performances and it was quite convoluted. This year they are concentrating the performances to in front of Kumano shrine.

In 2015 when we first visited it wasn’t too crowded, but there was a great atmosphere accentuated by the illuminated installations and live music.  The kids really enjoyed the light up and a few street performers that were entertaining people. We also got handed a few freebies on the street.  Getting home was difficult though as traffic and public transport had been disrupted, but other than that it was a great evening out.
