by on January 31, 2006

The Tokyo Metropolitan Government is holding “Tokyo Festa” — a day of free events throughout New York City — on February 7, 2006. The program is aimed at increasing awareness of Japan’s customs, culture, and cartoons.

Highlights include:

The En-Nichi Market
A recreation of an old Edo marketplace, featuring traditional fun and games for both children and adults. Prizes are included.

Taiko of Edo
Wadaiko (Japanese drums) are the heartbeat of most festivals in Tokyo, and the Tokyo Metro Government has brought some of Japan’s finest to Manhattan. They’ll be pounding away all day long.

Tokyo Anime Showcase
Want to watch the latest anime not yet available in America? The Tokyo Anime Showcase will give you your first glimpse of the anime of tomorrow — today. The showcase includes a special Studio 4C Film Festival.
