Celebrating Easter In Tokyo: 6 Special Food Events Perfect For The Holiday
Have an eggs-tra special Easter day in the city!
Get egg-cited this spring with these special Easter-themed brunch, lunch and dinner delights.
Easter in Japan is not as widely “celebrated” as Christmas — and certainly not even close to the craziness surrounding Valentine’s Day — but with more and more restaurants and other venues increasingly organizing special events catering to customers who celebrate the holiday, it is gradually gaining its momentum. This year, we’re witnessing some amazing food, drinks (and tons of sweets)-inspired plans perfect for an Easter eat-out day with the family or friends. If you’re here in Tokyo this April 21 (or April 28 if you’re celebrating Orthodox Easter), here are a few events worth checking out!
