by Huda

Spice up your spring at this kink-friendly Tokyo event!

Looking for a Tokyo event this spring that’s more hardcore than a hanami party? Following a rainy Fetish Festival 24 in January, Fetish Festival (aka FetiFes) is back for its 25th iteration this month. On top of warmer weather, FetiFes 25 promises to bring red-hot stage performances and a bevy of bodacious guests and exhibitors! Spring is the season of growth and new beginnings. Swing by FetiFes, and maybe the seeds of a new kink will sprout within you!

Fetish Festival 25 is on Sunday, April 28th in Nihonbashi, Tokyo at the Mensho Kaikan event hall from 12:00-18:00 (12:00pm6:00pm).

If you’re not a kinkster, don’t be fooled by this event’s name! Fetish Festival also welcomes non-sexual niche interests, with body modification, hard rock, horror, alternative fashion, and cult media enthusiasts also having a presence at the event. If you’re open-minded, respectful, and at least 18 years of age (photo ID required), anyone can join the fun at FetiFes!
