27th Annual Nihonbashi Bridge Spring Festival 架橋109周年 第27回春の名橋「日本橋」まつり

1-4-1 Nihonbashi-muromachi, Chuo-ku, Tokyo

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.

This festival is also known as the "Famous Bridge of Spring Nihonbashi Festival" or "Nihonbashi Famous Bridge Spring Festival." Held in early April for the past two decades, it celebrates the construction of the well-known Nihonbashi Bridge. With its distinguished stone arches, the bridge is an Important Cultural Property of Japan. 2019 marks 108 years since its construction.

The festival is held in the area surrounding the bridge. Old, established shops and local community groups participate and sell goods during the festival, bringing back the vibrant, lively atmosphere of the area during the Edo period (1603-1867).

The bridge is closed to traffic during the event, so you can actually walk out in the road and touch the famous "origin marker," which signifies the starting point of Japan's national road system.
