August Weekend Events in the Seisen Neighbourhood
Douglas Brittain

Setagaya prepares to host Team USA and the Tokyo 2020 Olympic and Paralympic Equestrian events.

We are only one year away from the 2020 Olympics and Paralympics. There are many sports and cultural events planned in the city leading up to this global event.

Setagaya is the official Host Town of the US Olympic team. Their pre-olympic training camp will be help at Okura Sports Ground near Kinuta park in early July 2020.

Equestrian events for the Olympics and Paralympics will be held just down the street from Seisen at Baji Koen. 

For the next two weekends there will be a number of summer festivals in the neighbourhood for families to enjoy.
