September 2017 Tokyo Top 10 Activities and Events2. Meguro Sanma Matsuri (Meguro, Tokyo) – One of my favorite things about Japan is the local community festivals. The Meguro Sanma Matsuri is held from 10:00 a.m. right outside Meguro Station. If you love grilled fish and want to join in celebrating the beginning of the Sanma season then this is just the place. Over 6,000 fish will be grilled up and served with slices of lime. The smell is amazing. My kids love grilled Sanma and the other matsuri activities in the block make for many smiles and adventures. While you are in the neighborhood, walk down the street and take a beautiful stroll through the Nature Park where you will forget you are even in downtown Tokyo.

Kabuki, Best Living JapanBONUS:  Experience a Short-Act Kabuki Show (Ginza) –  In all my years in Japan I have attended Kabuki once and have to admit I found the four hours+ show a tad long for my attention. However, I did love the experience. I recommend it to all visitors and residents that they should see Kabuki, but try a short act first which is both economical in yen and time. Every day the Kabukiza Theater in Ginza sells one act or short act tickets which range between 18 – 45 mins in viewing time and cost 600-2,000 yen. Details here.
