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.

While Japan isn’t exactly the craft beer haven that North America and Europe have become in recent years, the Japanese craft brew scene is rapidly growing. Only 20 years ago, craft beer in Japan was pretty much nonexistent, with a beer industry overpowered by big names like Asahi and Kirin.
It wasn’t until 1994 that the government lowered the annual output of beer necessary to obtain a brewing license from 2,000,000 liters to just 60,000. While hundreds of breweries opened their doors in the wake of the new law, a lack of brewer experience and a population generally unfamiliar with such variety caused many of them to close. Today, the market seems to have stabilized. According to the Japan Beer Times, there are now more than 300 craft breweries flaunting thousands of new varieties around the country.
As the hanami, or cherry blossom viewing, season cascades onto Japan, so too do more spring beer festivals. A perfect excuse to travel to a new part of Japan (especially with an upcoming 10-day Golden Week), here are some craft beer events to mark on your calendar.

Every year, for just over a week, Meguro’s usually sleepy river banks become a hive of activity, as one of Tokyo’s most magical spots to see the annual cherry blossoms. For several kilometers, the sweeping cherry trees provide an arched canvas of blossoms uplit by lanterns, making this a perfect place to admire the scenery, take a walk or grab a bite to eat.
