What we do

Higashimurayama Culture and Entertainment Festival

  • Organization : Higashimurayama City
  • Section : Regional Cultural Activities
  • Type of Grant Program : Single


The aim of this event is for a large number of citizens to be exposed to Chinese and Japanese culture, creating opportunities to come into contact with various aspects of culture and entertainment and promoting the passing-on of this artistic and cultural legacy to the next generation. Specifically, the festival will offer an instrumental performance by the Chinese Songs and Dance Company in Tokyo, Japanese dance by Kikunokai Japanese Traditional Dance Troupe, and a program of shows and displays by member organizations of the Higashimurayama Cultural Association. Organizers also hope to create a buzz from a cultural perspective with offerings such as an exhibition of Japanese culture-related works, conveying the appeal of arts and culture over a wide range of fields in an enthusiastic presentation of cultural endeavors from Japan and China.


【Higashimurayama City】
Located in the northwestern part of the Tokyo metropolitan area, virtually in the center of the Musashino Plateau, the city sits on a diluvial formation stretching from the Arakawa to the Tama River. The city’s northwestern edges include the Sayama Hills which stand out on the Musashino Plateau and gently descend towards the Arakawa River in the northeast.
Within the city are wooded areas and rural scenery that offer a reminder of old Musashino, and balm for the soul of local walkers. Particularly eye-catching are the stunning irises, lotus flowers, cluster amaryllis and lush greenery of Kitayama Park, one of the “One Hundred Views of New Tokyo” set against Hachikokuyama mountain.
