This week in Tokyo, the temperatures are set to soar and the rain to pour. Luckily, the events line up for this week is 100% weatherproof!
Dog Stories Exhibition, Daikanyama
Dog Stories features three Japanese artists, all with canine inspired themes in their work. Even if you’re not a dog lover yourself, there’s a lot to love in this exhibtion. Both art work and merchandise is available for purchase.
Roast Battle Tokyo BEGINS! Championship Tournament, Shibuya
Watch and cringe with empathetic pain as Japan’s top English-language comedians insult and belittle each other for the honor of being able to call themselves very nasty bastards. And there’s a trophy.
|Advance sales: ¥2,500|
Akasaka Antique Market in Ark Hills, Akasaka/Roppongi
More vintage clothing than vintage items, there are still some stalls with interesting knick knacks including a stall selling German household items, as well as some craft and furniture stalls.
Katsushika Iris Festival
The Shobu thrive in the damp, hot weather of early summer, so this week is great timing for seeing these seasonal flowers in full bloom.
