Interested in eating, drinking, dancing and shopping? All in one spot? Head to the events square at Yoyogi Park for The World Gourmet and Music Festival where you can tuck into some international cuisine, get your groove on and peruse the flea market stalls.

If you’re at Yoyogi Park on Sunday, June 27th, you’ll also stumble across the monthly Japanese Antique Market. A great place to pick up tangible pieces of Japanese culture and art or authentic souvenirs to bring back home.
