japan festival boston photoBack after a 5-year hiatus, the Japan Festival Boston features booths offering delicious foods and goods, games, and activities typical to traditional Japanese festivals, as well as music and performances by local artists on multiple stages.

This year’s festival will feature various performances on the Main Stage and at the Gazebo. There will be cultural workshops at our culture tent, and kids games and activities at the Kids Corner.

Vendors will be on hand selling Japanese products, art, and various other goods. And also cultural groups, such as Ikebana, Tea Ceremony, martial arts groups, and so much more!

This festival was created to commemorate the Centennial of the original gift of cherry trees from Japan to Washington, DC in 1912. The event will present a unique opportunity for Boston families and visitors to enjoy Japanese food and entertainment, and to learn about Japanese culture in an entertaining environment.

2 stages will host various performances from traditional Japanese dance to music, and even the globally popular cosplay contest. Attendees of all ages can enjoy our cultural workshops that began last year, experiencing a wide range of Japan.

With the goal of a bringing back a Japanese cultural festival that will thrive for the next 100 years, the Japanese and Japanese-American community in Boston has come together to create an event that introduces many forms of Japan, including its traditional and pop culture, business and industry, and much more

Enjoy a fun day celebrating Japan on the Boston Common.
