EN-NICHI Old-School Japanese Festival in the Bow Market Courtyard!

En-nichi means "Festival Day" in Japanese.

On Friday, April 26th, from 4pm - 9pm, the Bow Market courtyard will be filled with fun and joy for all - from children to adults. There will be food, music, dance, games, and merriment. Join us and enjoy our old fashioned EN-NICHI Japanese festival!

What is EN-NICHI?

Every summer in Japan, people wearing Yukata (Japanese robes) gather to enjoy locally-rooted festivals in each town. These festivals are called En-nichi. Originally, these festivals served as ceremonies for warding off evil and praying for a good harvest. However, they have evolved into summer fun traditions cherished by people of all ages.

Special guests from Japan!

At this event, we will recreate the atmosphere of an old-school Japanese festival with a special guest group from Japan, Dagashiya Rock!

Dagashiya Rock are known to travel all over Japan, entertaining people with their unique wagon, music, dance, special games, and traditional foods, to create traditional festivals. This will be their first time coming to the US to share the Japanese culture of these festivals.

Let us introduce you to the traditional food and games, and share with you the fun! Experience the atmosphere of the Japanese festival and explore Japanese culture!

Special Games and Activities

We will also feature a variety of special food collaborations with Bow Market food retailers!

Advance Purchase Game Tickets: 6 for $30*

*You can attend this event for free

At the day of the event, each Dagashiya Rock game and food item will be $6.00.

Advance tickets can be purchased online for $30 for 6 tickets, or at KO-KYOTO before the event. Please note, these tickets will not cover the cost of food from other Bow Market Retailers.

Bring your ticket receipts to the ticket booth, or to KO-KYOTO and we will provide you with your physical tickets. You can also purchase tickets on the day of the event, on-site.
