The famous temple near Tsukiji hosts a bon odori (築地本願寺納涼盆踊り大会) for four days around the beginning of August. The open grounds of the shrine provide a good arena for dancing around the yagura scaffolding, but the other big attraction is the food stalls set up by local vendors. Indeed, the temple promotes the event as “Japan’s Most Delicious Bon Odori”. Let your expectations run high! The festival runs from 7pm to 9pm each night (6pm to 8:30pm on the Saturday).
