What's Happening

The summer vacation is almost over and with school (and work) officially about to restart, traveling out of town this weekend is perhaps not on many Tokyoites' agenda. Well, that's good news, because this weekend is all about taking it slow in Tokyo. There are a number of last chances to see popular events and welcome new ones, namely the annual international jazz festival, a Soran dance matsuri, and a kids international gathering in Ebisu. Relax and enjoy!

Unique Sculptures
