As if in the blink of an eye, 2017 is coming to a close. Before the year ends, though, here are some festivities that might help you end your year on a good note. And these aren’t the only events worth checking out, as winter illuminations and Christmas markets are very much a thing in Tokyo in December.

What’s an ‘International Quiz Night’, you say?
A fun night of quizzes for international-minded people with a focus on climate change, environmental issues and divestment.
Vegetarian – friendly food
A fun night out to challenge ourselves, learn new things about the world and climate change – all while enjoying delicious food and good music! ♪
The questions and answers will be in both English and Japanese so it’s a great opportunity for anyone looking to hone your Japanese skills and pick up some new vocabulary.
A unique opportunity in Tokyo, there aren’t many events like this! ♪
Don’t be shy! Come join the fun!☆☆☆
What is Divestment?
You keep your money in a bank, right? Well that money may be used by your bank in ways that negatively impact people on the other side of the planet, or worse, right here in your own backyard! Your bank could be investing that money coal or nuclear power plants that directly contribute to climate change!
If you know your bank is supporting nuclear and fossil fuels, you can take action. You can divest and move your accounts to other banks that don’t support such activities. At 350, that’s the kind of action we are promoting for Japan.
On the glass tower that imaged this year’s Christmas theme ‘LOVE & JOY’, there are many sparkling stars!
“Show fountain” performed in center fountain open space becomes Christmas version and heaps up the mood still more on Christmas!
