Since the closing of Ginza-dori to traffic in August 1970 as the first vehicle-free promenade in Japan, we have been holding events under the name of Holiday Promenade on Chuo-dori each year when it closes to traffic to commemorate the vehicle-free promenade and give visitors to Ginza a day of summer fun.
The Yukata de Gin-bura Festival is one part of this Holiday Promenade that was started in 2007 to have people come to Ginza wearing a yukata, that is also a special summer tradition, and enjoy a moment of coolness.
This year, for our 12th Yukata de Ginbura, we will host a extended version of the “Dai Ginza Bon-odori – featuring booths sponsored by renowned stores in Ginza –” which was held for the first time last year with great success. The event will be held as a part of the pre-night on Saturday, August 4 as well as on Sunday, August 5, the main “Yukata de Ginbura” event day. We look forward to welcoming you to enjoy summertime in Ginza in your yukata!
