Recommendation by Lemi
There’s something for every type of rock lover at Fuji Rock Festival! From funk-rock and folk-rock to the eclectic likes of Bjӧrk and The Gorillaz, the eastern slope of Mount Takenoko has truly seen it all. Throughout the years, Fuji Rock has bounced back from a disastrous first year into a highly anticipated event with over 200 acts. The festival started out on a ski resort at the foot of Mount Fuji, then a waterfront area in Tokyo, until finally finding a home at Naeba Ski Resort in Niigata. Over the last weekend of July, more than 100,000 people heat up the green slopes with their presence. Camp out nearby and keep close to the festival; or, experience true Japanese hospitality in a ryokan (traditional guesthouse).
