Happening in Tokyo

  • February 2 and 3 you can catch a program of classic Japanese cinema, “Rediscovery of YAMAMOTO Satsuo” (it’s part 9 in “The Japan Foundation Film Series”), at OAG Haus (next to the Canadian Embassy) in Akasaka. Films will be shown with English subtitles, with entry at only 600 yen per screening. You’ll find the schedule and additional details here.
  • This Friday (January 25) sees the opening of a new bookstore and publishing company, Shibuya Publishing Booksellers. The party is from 18:00 to 22:00.
  • Just a reminder that next Tuesday (January 29, 19:00-22:00) sees the “Hitotoki Hitoban” event/party at the Pink Cow in Shibuya. I’ll be reading the story I wrote for the site.
