What's Happening

With the rainy season finally coming to an end it's time to welcome the beginning of summer — and there's no better way to do that but go out in the city and enjoy it to the fullest! This weekend there are plenty of outdoor events, including an Earth Garden in Yoyogi Park, a sunflower festival in Chiba, two Tanabata celebrations and a shrine visit festival in Asakusa, as well as a beer garden — for there's nothing like a taste of summer but a chilled beer! Enjoy!
