Haisai translates to hello in the Okinawan dialect, and the Haisai Festival in Kawasaki has celebrated Okinawan culture for 21 years now. The event presents the opportunity to try Okinawan foodie favorites like soki soba, taco rice, and Blue Seal ice cream, enjoy traditional music and dance performances, or purchase a variety of fun Okinawan souvenirs.


There is no admission fee to enjoy the event, but do bring yen if you plan on buying food, drink, or souvenir items.

Getting there

The event takes place around Kawasaki Station's East Exit. The station is served by the Keihin Tōhoku Line, the Tōkaidō Main Line, and the Nambu Line. Google Maps information can be found here.

For those who opt to drive, there are several paid parking lots around the La Cittadella Mall, which is one of the event venues.
