Be Irish For A Day!
I Love Ireland Festival & St. Patrick’s Day Parade
You don’t have to be Irish to enjoy this festival, so wear something green and plunge into the wildness happening this very weekend at the annual I Love Ireland Festival in Yoyogi Park. The event includes performances by top Irish musicians and dancers, delicious food and drinks, and various sports, culture and craft activities. Sunday’s Tokyo St. Patrick’s Day Parade on Omotesando boulevard, where some 1,500 participants from all over the world will march together to celebrate Ireland’s national day, is also a must-see!
Remembering the Tohoku Earthquake
An Evening of Shomyo Jazz
Jazz quintet Super Red Band will be joining the Buddhist priests of Takahata Fudo-son and other nearby temples to hold a charity concert benefiting areas impacted by the 2011 Tohoku earthquake. The concert’s setlist will feature a fusion of modern jazz and shomyo, a millennium old style of lyrical chanting used in Buddhist prayers for the living and departed. The theme of the unique combination is finding peace in the past and fun in the future. A bit far from central Tokyo but definitely worth the visit!
Sakura & Strawberry Afternoon Tea Buffet
Grand Hyatt Tokyo’s The French Kitchen is combining the best of spring flavors with a pink sakura and strawberry afternoon tea that features an endless selection of sweet and savory items from the lavish buffet. The buffet also features a unique pink ruby chocolate fountain. Enjoy with your choice of organic tea or fresh coffee.
