Nebuta Decorations at Tokyo Midtown

Posted in Places by tokyobling on July 25, 2014

The large Tokyo Midtown complex has some nice Nebuta decorations going on right now, by all means pop in and have a look if you have the time! Nebuta is a famous festival from Japan’s northern Aomori prefecture and is famous for its large colorful and lit paper sculptures. Neighboring Akita prefecture is also represented in the interesting traditional take on pole dancing. In this case it is not ladies balancing on poles, but rather large poles balancing on men!

Tokyo Midtown is one of the most upscale shopping complexes in Tokyo and they often have interesting exhibitions and decorations going on. The Nebuta festival is one of my favorites and there is even a mini version in western Tokyo’s Tachikawa City that I have blogged about earlier.
