This festival will feature around 200 booths offering local gourmet foodstuffs and specialties, showcasing local commerce and industry, exhibiting and selling agricultural products like vegetables and plants, offering specialties from sister- and friendship-cities, and more. There will be dance and musical performances by local citizen groups at a specially constructed outdoor stage, and visitors can get a closer look at dancing and drumming along “Performance Street.”
On the 10th there will also be a parade from Yato Icho-Park to the festival venue.
Nishitokyo City was created in 2001 from the merging of two former cities, Tanashi and Hoya. Located in the middle of the Musashino Plateau, Nishitokyo City is about 20 minutes from Ikebukuro Station, about 25 minutes from Seibu-Shinjuku Station, and around 20 minutes away by bus from Chuo Line stations like Kichijoji, Mitaka and Musashisakai.
The city’s population as of October 1, 2019 was 204,658 people and has continued to grow since the city’s establishment. City officials are working towards making Nishitokyo a city focused on health and the support of health, forging ahead with urban development that incorporates a health perspective in all policies and measures so that people will target Nishitokyo as a place they want to continue living in or move to.
