The 15th annual street performance festival will be held around Cocoon City, the Keyaki Hiroba and Omiya Katakura park as well as other areas of Saitama Shintoshin on January 6th and 7th 2018. You can pick up a map with schedule at the front of the Saitama Shintoshin station. It is in Japanese, but the map is useful and shows were the various performance areas, marked by letters of the alphabet.

The festival is scheduled for between 11 am and 4 pm on both days. There maybe some changes to the line-up, if there is heavy rainfall.  This is a free event.

From the official site

Just like last year they will have a number of different performances in different areas, but there are two headline acts as such. The first is a juggling act which replaces last year’s acrobats. The second is the same as last year, the ever popular and incredible members of a 4000 year old Chinese street performing legacy. This act was our personal favourite on January 6th 2017. On the 7th they will perform outside Cocoon 2 at 11.30 am, at Cocoon 1 at 1 pm and in the Keyaki Hiroba’s plaza area at 2.30 pm.

There are also clowns, musicians, comedic acrobats, jugglers and dancers, stilt walkers, street artists, puppeteers, comedians and various other artists you can enjoy over the two day festival.

Its surely a New Year event not to be missed!

Shortly after the event finishes the illumination is turned on in both Cocoon City and the Keyaki Hiroba.

You will find other seasonal events on the Saitama With Kids main event calendar.

Saitama Shintoshin is a shopping, dining and leisure facility in the heart of Saitama Prefecture. There is plenty to do in the surrounding area with an abundance of parks, museums and play centers nearby. One of my choices for young children in the vicinity is the ever popular Kid-O-Kid Play centre in Cocoon, minutes walk from the station and near many of the locations of this event:
