Yabito Festival: Why don’t you escape from the urban noise and join us on for Weekend in the nature?Music
I am KITARO, managing events and performing as a DJ in Tokyo (Dj kitAro).
I am actively involved in planning events in remote areas, including major clubs in Tokyo.
If you search on the web for “Tokyo” or “Night life” , you will find many photos of people enjoying clubs, right? I personally know how fun it is, as a DJ performing in Tokyo’s clubs. However a photo is not representing of the reality. For tourists who have limited time in Tokyo, looking at the photos is cool, but the reality might be very different. Let’s avoid such a disappointment!
Why don’t you leave the big city clubs and enjoy music in the nature? And since you are coming to Japan, how about listining the music of artists based in Tokyo?
Yabito Festival is what you are looking for.
Although it was only a gathering of friends at the beginning, the scale of the event has increased year by year while maintaining a cozy atmosphere. The event is tailored to the four seasons in Japan, suggesting ways to enjoy music that you cannot experience in Tokyo: Yabito Festval during in summer, and Snow Trunk in the winter.
A selection of Artists based in Tokyo with different genre from all over the world gather together for the event!
The event has already reached its fifth year since the first time. As a festival that focuses on the harmony between people and nature, away from the hustle and bustle of the metropolitan area.
// YABITO // content and the sound played by the artist will provide a luxurious time that resonates within the values between people, coexists with nature, harmonizes with the local community and reminds of the season. Come and experience “YABITO” where you can fully enjoy the “breath of nature” that you can never taste in the city!

I noticed that there are many attractive places in Japan that don’t attracted much attention. This is why in the future I am planning an unprecedented town development events, with the aim of revitalizing the region. There is no specific place to enjoy the music. If you are a new comer in Japan, please feel free to contact us.
I hope you we can experience Japanese outdoor events together.
