If you’re in Tokyo during early August, it is the perfect time to enjoy the Asagaya Tanabata Festival, and during this time we will be holding Japanese culture workshops including making sushi, Japanese crafts, and we let you rent yukata (Japanese summer robes) to go to the festival in! See details on the Japan Culture Workshops page, and sign up before the workshops fill up!
We have a new interview page so that you can get to know some of the unique artists in Suginami, Tokyo! We also updated our workshops page so you can get the necessary info to create your unique Japanese experience and souvenirs! Both pages are in the “Learn” section under “INFO”.
At all major JR stations in Tokyo and stations in Suginami on the Chuo Line you can pick up a FREE Ramen Guide & Chuo Line Area Map: it has information on local points of interest AND information on 9 recommended ramen shops in the Suginami Chuo Line area!
From December 6, 2016 – March 20, 2017 you can get 2000 yen in coupons to use at 6 participating restaurants including ramen, sushi, and more! If you are a tourist staying at Smile Hotel in Asagaya, BnA Hotel in Koenji, or the new Anshin Oyado Capsule Hotel in Ogikubo you will be eligible for the coupons if you fill out a very short survey about your travels!
