Starting on Friday, March 13 until May 7, you’ll get the rare opportunity to stroll through a hidden garden at Denpoin Temple that’s usually closed to public viewing. You can also set your eyes on some private works of art that the temple’s abbot has acquired over the years. This sense of exclusivity and bragging rights to “how waaay more cultured you are than your friends” can be yours for only 300 yen.

 Suggested Activity 

Boogie lovers should make their way down to Yoyogi Park on Saturday and Sunday for the Thai Music Grammy Award Festival. It’s guaranteed to satisfy your Asian pop music, dancing, and festival food needs.

And forget lazy Sundays—get yourself to Yurakucho for the Oedo Antique Market. Here at Tokyo Cheapo, we really love this market since it makes a great place for buying souvenirs, perusing antiques like a museum, and testing out your Japanese skills with the locals!



The 3D Architectural Ghibli Exhibition has been running since last July, and due to its popularity it was actually extended another 3 months. Unfortunately, Ghibli mania has to come to an end sometime, so this is the final weekend to see replicated buildings from all your favourite Ghibli films.
