Marunouchi’s annual winter scenery event, Marunouchi Illumination 2018, starts this year from November 8th (Thursday). Between the shops along the 1.2 kilometers of Marunouchi Naka-Dori, and the over 200 trees along Otemachi Naka-Dori, over 100 million LED lights in the Marunouchi-original “champagne gold” color light up the area to make a spectacular Christmastime cityscape.
My lunch this time was a BISTRO MARX on the 7th floor of the GINZA PLACE building.
This is the world’s first branch of the Grand Bistro, supervised by Thierry Marx, head chef of 2-star Paris restaurants. Here you can enjoy Marx-styled French cuisine themed after “a fusion of cooking and bread” for a reasonable price.
The Sanno Matsuri is a religious festival held by Hie Shrine in Tokyo. During Japan's Edo Period (1603-1867), a portable shrine used in Shinto festivals, called Mikoshi, was carried into the Edo Castle grounds. This was the origin of a special festival known as Tenka-Matsuri, in which real Shoguns paraded through what is now Tokyo. Spanning 11 days, this festival features over 20 events.
I recently had lunch at Heinz Beck, a restaurant that was awarded 1 Michelin star, located near the Imperial Palace in Tokyo. Chef Heinz Beck, from Rome's La Pergola, winner of 3 Michelin stars for 12 consecutive years, is a master in the world of gastronomy. Now his first fine dining establishment has opened in Tokyo!
Tokyo’s Oak Hostel CabinRead Later
This time, we will be introducing a capsule hotel-style hostel in Tokyo called “Oak Hostel Cabin.”
Taking a train from the station nearest to the hostel, Kayabacho Station, you can reach Tokyo Station in 10 minutes, Roppongi Station in 15 minutes, and Shinjuku Station in around 30 minutes. This makes Oak Hostel Cabin’s location very convenient for both sightseeing and business!
“Sleeper Train Hokutosei” was opened in 1988 as the first non-stop train connecting Tokyo and Hokkaido, and while it shut down in 2015, it was Japan’s first luxury sleeper train. This time, I stayed at “Train Hostel Hokutosei,” a facility that utilizes actual parts of the famous sleeper train for its interior decorations.
