Imabari’s popular annual event ‘Imabari Jazz Town’ was started in 1999 to commemorate the completion of Shimanami Kaido, the set of bridges which connect Imabari to Onomichi city. This year marks the 13th anniversary.
Imabari Jazz lovers are planning and organizing this event with a lot of support kindly offered by Imabari City Office and local businesses. This is a great town revitalization event organized by local citizens.
Top artists from inside and outside Japan, as well as, local musicians will get together to perform hot jazz music during this two-day event. This year, it will also double as a charity event for Higashi Nihon disaster relief.
Let’s have a wonderful jazzy time in ‘Jazz town, Imabari’ on the 20th and 21st of August!
