Although Japan’s temples and shrines can sit rather quietly during the winter, tomorrow is Setsubun so if you are in Japan February 3 is a good day to give your local shrine or temple a visit to see if they have something going on.

Summer festivals in Japan

While wandering through my old neighborhood in Tokyo a little over a year ago I noticed these signs for the 2013 version of the Bon Odori I went to in 2009 and the matsuri I went to that same year. Unfortunately, I wasn’t going to be in Tokyo long enough to experience either of them again. Instead, I ended up at this place.

The poster on the right is for the 2020 Summer Paralympics which will also take place in Tokyo. That announcement came down shortly after I took this photo.
