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.

Keeping with the outdoor market theme, Akihabara UDX is hosting the Mottainai Festa 2015—an eco-friendly lifestyle event with a flea market, thrift shop, entertainment for kids and heaps more to raise money for green charities.



Manga, anime and game lovers will fare well in Roppongi over the next few days at the Manga*Anime*Games from Japan Exhibition held at the National Art Center. For 1,000 yen, you’ll get to see how the three genres have impacted various aspects of Japanese society.

Happy Weekend!
