Experience Japan In One Day
Furusato Matsuri Tokyo 2020
Visiting all of Japan’s 47 prefectures is a time (and cash)-consuming experience, but luckily a few people got together and came up with a single festival that brings the best of the best all the way from Hokkaido to Okinawa. Come and explore traditional Japanese performances, regional matsuri recreations, local specialties and more from all around Japan. One of the largest cultural events of the year, this one is a real gem.
Year Of The Rat
New Year’s Card (Nengajo) Exhibition
A beautiful display of new year greeting cards sent in from all over Japan will be exhibited to celebrate the new year. Each piece, made by children and adults, is unique and touched by a very creative artistic taste (as far as we can tell). During the exhibition period, there will also be an art event of Japanese lifestyle and culture.
Slide Your Way
Ice Skating at Tokyo Midtown
The outdoor ice skating rink at Tokyo Midtown is one of the largest in the city, with a capacity of 210 people. It’s perfect for beginners and advanced skaters alike, and children are welcome, making this a great family outing right in the center of the city. For a fun, romantic date option head to the rink after 5 p.m., when the lights on the surrounding trees are switched on.
