Overview

Held annually on the last Saturday of August, Asakusa Samba Carnival is Japan's biggest samba carnival contest. The samba dance teams have their own impressive routines and gorgeous costumes comparable to the Rio Carnival in Brazil. Competing samba teams are categorized in different leagues depending on their size. The top S1 League has teams with 150 or more members. They also have large floats called "Alegorias." About 500,000 spectators jam the samba parade route from Basha-dori street to Kaminarimon-dori road.

a variety of different museums and galleries. At
Ameyoko which starts in front of Ueno station, the
