The Tokyo INJ St. Patrick’s Day Parade is the biggest Irish celebration in Asia and has been on the go since 1992. This year over 50,000 people lined the illustrious Omotesando avenue in downtown Tokyo to witness another spectacle of Irish culture & pomp. Here’s just some of the media coverage that followed the event. We’re already planning for next year so if you or your company want to be involved please do contact the INJ to explore possibilities!
