In order to prevent the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19), various facilities around Tokyo may change their operating days or hours. In addition, some events may be canceled or postponed. Please check official facility or event websites for the latest updates and information.
Starting from the south exit of Asagaya Station and stretching 700 meters down through the area, Asagaya Pearl Center is an undercover shopping street, known in Japanese as a shotengai. Filled with shops, cafes, restaurants, and other small businesses, visit if you want to experience a truly authentic taste of local Japanese life.
Although not your typical tourist destination, Asagaya Pearl Center comes alive during its many regular local celebrations. Two highlights are in August when the street is populated by giant Tanabata Matsuri floats, and October as the bars, clubs, and other public spaces in the area host live music performances during the annual Asagaya Jazz Streets festival.
For updated information on opening hours, closings, prices, and more, please check the official website or ask the facility directly.
