Koenji is home to many of the city’s free-thinking mavericks who have transformed the neighborhood into a hub of art, vintage fashion, and undeniably some of Tokyo’s best nightlife.

The yearly Awa Odori Festival which takes place in August, draws a crowd of over a million people who gather to marvel at the beautiful dancers and rhythmic sounds of drums which perfectly match the free-spirited energy that is Koenji.
