This event lets parents pass that tricky “Where does food come from?” question onto real farmers, who will hold educational seminars on agriculture for kids. In addition, there will be an array of food options available and various farm animals to befriend.
Snow Bank Pay It Forward
Ready for snow in Tokyo? A slope of the white stuff and a rail will be set up at Yoyogi Park where you can snowboard and sled. There will also be food, music and skateboarding ramps if you’re just not ready for snow to be in your life yet. This event is partnered with Red Cross to raise awareness about becoming a bone marrow donor, hence the “Pay It Forward” part of the name.
There are certain times in the year that can make your visit to Tokyo less than idea.
