  • Yebisu Green Farm

    27 – 30 April; 3 -6 May 2019
    Yebisu Garden Place

    Celebrating its 25th anniversary this year, Yebisu Garden Place will host a series of events to “connect people and place”.

    The first of the series will be held just during the Golden Week holiday period in Japan, to highlight a green life in Tokyo.

    Drop by for an 8-day festival full of leafy greens, workshops and stalls of plants, veggie stuff and nursery stock.


    Yebisu Green Farm 2019

    Taste, touch and create something for a green life during this two-part festival.

    At “Urban Farmers’ Summit 2019” held for the first four days – not very much of a “summit” in the usual sense, but rather a “fair” – come harvest vegetables, taste an organic vegetable salad and/or join one of these green workshops.

    At “GreenSnap marché Yebisu” held for the last four days, you can stock up greens for your house and participate in one of workshops offered by members of GreenSnap, an SNS community of green lovers.
