    About Odaiba Hawaii Festival 

    Odaiba Hawaii Festival is one of the top Golden Week destinations in Tokyo. And it’s free, like any other great events held in the Japanese capital. Last year the festival drew a total of some 480,000 visitors over the nine-day period.

    The commercial and attraction complex VenusFort, which boasts Toyota’s showroom MEGA WEB and TeamLab’s media-art facility among others, will daily host excellent shows, such as Hawaiian music, dance and Polynesian performances.

    The festival will also entice you to go for Hawaiian foods, items and souvenirs, as well as articles for tropical vacation. Moreover, some workshops will help you to learn a bit of the Hawaiian culture, like playing the ukulele, or to make your own tropical items.


    2019 Odaiba Hawaii Festival’s theme 

    The 2019 theme of the festival, held for the 17th time this year, is “My Aloha”. Find your favourite Hawaii at Odaiba via wonderful live performances, food and more.
