Marunouchi Illumination

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.

Casual French Cuisine at BISTRO MARX in Ginza

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, one of Tokyo's Three Major Festivals

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.
