November 10 @ 12:00 - 15:00Free
Kawagoe Tojinsoroi Parade – The area of Ichibangai in Kawagoe is pedestrianized for the annual parade of historic and traditional Asian clothes. Some of the participating International groups play traditional music from their country as they parade the tourist area. It is a very colourful and child friendly parade.
Kawagoe Tojinsoroi Parade Schedule
Even though there is only a week to go, the still don’t have this year’s schedule updated on their website. But if it follows the schedule of previous years the parade should start from noon from Renkeiji.
About 300 people participate in the parade. There will be live music and performances in the parade, but the main performances will be Renkeiji from 2 pm.
Ichibangai is the main tourist strip in Kawagoe, accessible from Tobu Tojo Line Kawagoe station and Seibu Shinjuku Line Hon-Kawagoe station. The latter is closest, approximately a 12 minute walk. In both stations there are tourist information centres and volunteers who will happily provide you with a walking map or direct you to a bus station with details where to alight. Please note as the main tourist strip is closed to traffic for this festival there will be a lot of congestion and you can’t alight on the main tourist strip itself.
