The Fukuro Matsuri was started in 1968 by four shop associations on the west side of Ikebukuro Station. Over the years, the festival has grown into a large, lively event that takes over west Ikebukuro. An opening ceremony is held on the first evening of the festival. You can see a mikoshi (portable shrine) parade, taiko drum shows, traditional lion dances, and hayashi festival music performances throughout the second day. In the evening, there is another large mikoshi parade.
