13th Ginza Willow Festival 第十三回 銀座柳まつり

Nishi-Ginza-dori Street and Sukiyabashi Park, Chuo City, Tokyo

Each year on Children's Day (May 5), Nishi-Ginza-dori Street is closed to traffic in order to host this magnificent event. The highlight is the Traffic Safety Golden Parade, organized by the Tokyo Metropolitan Police Department and the Tokyo Band Association. Around 2,000 performers—including brass bands and baton-twirling groups based in the Tokyo area—take part in the festivities. You can also see traditional dance performances from across Japan and learn about different regions through a campaign to promote local tourism. This is a fun-filled event for all ages.
