THIS YEAR’S SANCHA DE DAIDOGEI

The streets, the theatre and the houses coming together as one!
There is something different about this year’s Sancha de Daidogei. Remember to thoroughly check the information beforehand in order to enjoy the different locations!
Sancha de Daidogei is the two days of the year when Sangenjaya transforms into an “art town”. But there is something a little different about it this year!
Every year, Sancha de Daidogei plays host to 200,000 visitors. With the safety of our visitors in mind, the festival will be taking place in a slightly different form this year.
Remember to check information such as venue, time and ticket reservation methods in advance, and enjoy all the different locations!

 

Sangenjaya Becomes Art Town!

Sangenjaya is just five minutes away from Shibuya on the Tokyu Den-en-toshi Line. Away from the bustling city center, this town is a place where people can feel relaxed. Carrot Tower, a landmark of Setagaya, stands in front of the station. Throughout the surrounding area, shops and homes maintain the neighborhood’s friendly atmosphere. A variety of people come and go in its peaceful residential areas.

Setagaya Art Town: Sancha de Daidogei is an art festival that transforms this town into a somewhat quirky ‘art town’ for two days. Beginning in 1997, local shopping streets and the Setagaya Arts Center came together to make the town of Sangenjaya a theater, and the event has now been established as an autumn festival.

 

You’re Not Just Watching—Visitors Are the Stars Too!

Step out of the station, and walk in whichever direction your feet take you. Everywhere you go, you can see the magnificent performances of artists from all over the world—pantomime, juggling, fire dancing and acrobatics—or let yourself be drawn by delicious aromas, to take a peek at each shopping street’s best food and drink stands.

Throughout the town, volunteer staff and shopping streets work together, unique, dreamed-up decorations add splashes of color, and out of the corner of your eye, you can see walking acts—moving street performances—coming to meet you.

There’s also Art Rakuichi, a market of small shops lining the Karasuyamagawa Green Road, run by 100 groups of various artists, selling small items full of humor and other goods. There’s the Fortune-Telling Street, where famous fortune tellers gather in the arcade on Setagaya-dori. There’s the Caricature Corner, run by town experts. Other attractions, such as candy sculpture, will put you in a fun, festive mood.

These two days bring 170,000 visitors. The town is bustling with people. There is joy as residents of Sangenjaya encounter those gathering from outside the town, as well as artists. The next thing you know, that joy has made everyone here a star of today’s show.

It is a festival that performers, locals, volunteer staff and visitors can enjoy together. It is Setagaya Art Town: Sancha de Daidogei.

FLAG RECYCLING PROJECT

We recycle flags and banners that have been used at festivals and in local shopping streets, and with the help of social services in Setagaya and all of our volunteer staff, we create original goods.
The finished goods are sold during the festival, with the proceeds going to a charitable cause—the money collected goes on to support areas affected by the Great East Japan Earthquake.
Through this festival, we aim for this project to send good vibes and well wishes to those in Setagaya Ward and East Japan.

Project Goals
・Eco-friendly activities
・Contributing to local community (support for social services, getting to know people where we live)
・Support for areas affected by the Great East Japan Earthquake

Project Sponsor
Toho Holdings Co., Ltd.
