Tokyo events for Monday, February 12 to Sunday, February 18, 2024.
Super Bowl 2024: Where to Watch
You’re here because you want to see if the Chiefs can defend their title, or if the 49ers can take it back to San Fran. Or maybe you’re just sticking around for the commercials and half-time show (Usher!). Either way, you might want to know where and how you can watch the game this Monday, February 12 at 08:30 a.m. (JST).
Tokunoshima Tourism & Products Fair
Tokunoshima — an island found in the Amami archipelago of Kagoshima Prefecture — can seem a long way from Tokyo. If you’d like to give some of their food and cultural attractions a trial before you make the trip south, then this event gives you a chance to do just that.
For those who love surfing, skateboarding, snowboarding, or any other action sports, INTERSTYLE 2024 is the event for you. Planned to be held at Pacifico Yokohama from February 13 to February 15, INTERSTYLE is Japan’s largest sports and outdoor trade show.
Artists Flea Market at Kirameki Art Festival
We love a flea market here at Tokyo Cheapo, and this one is made for creatives and artists. Young talented Japanese artists set up stalls and sell everything from rings and pottery to art materials. There will also be workshops and opportunities to chat with fellow creatives.
Japan International Orchid and Flower Show
Orchids are an important symbol to many Japanese gardeners and flower fans. This February, you can see their beauty in person at the Japan International Orchid and Flower Show. Visitors can experience an array of beautifully arranged floral artwork from the moment they walk in — go through the Orchid Gate, a display made from 100,000 orchids, and an ideal selfie spot.
