2016 Shinjuku Eisa Festival 7.30 Sat.

Welcome to Shinjuku to join the 15th Shinjuku Eisa Festival this year!

Ever since 2002, Shinjuku Eisa Festival is held on the last Saturday of July every year and this year marks the 15th anniversary of Shinjuku Eisa Festival.

On this day, the whole town of Shinjuku will be featured by Okinawa culture and there will be many visitors from all over Japan. “Eisa” not only belongs to Okinawa but there are Eisa teams in every region of Japan. Even in foreign countries “Eisa” is starting to get common and is now enjoyed all around the world.

To mark the 15th anniversary of Shinjuku Eisa Festival, there will be 27 Eisa Teams performing at the festival, which is the largest participation ever.

We were able to continue this amazing festival from day 1 until today because of the full support and understanding of Shinjuku Ward and Okinawa Prefecture.

Let’s unite through Eisa and spend an fantastic day in Shinjuku together!

Chairman Kichitaro Takano

Volunteer activity of Kabukicho


Many foreign tourists have recently come to the police for victim reports.
These visitors were approached by street callers in the KABUKICHO area, taken to a bar or drinking location that non-Japanese citizens run, and then served very strong liquor.
As a result,before they had realized it, their money or credit cards had gone.
DON'T GET VICTIMIZED. We'd like you to be fully aware of such malicious street callers or drinking places.

There are a lot of scam prices in Kabukicho.
Please be careful especially when you enter a place you’re not familiar with, or when you go from shop to shop.
Never follow puller-ins. It’s illegal.
Disturbing the peace goes against the Entertainment and Amusement Trades Control Act.
