  • Six Japanese Arcade Games

    Time Out Tokyo has a post up with a round-up of six Japanese arcade games that you should try playing. I especially like the post for the illustrations by Kento Iida.

  • Ninja Gaiden: The Definitive Soundtrack

    Nice to see Brave Wave getting coverage for their Ninja Gaiden: The Definitive Soundtrack release over at Time Out Tokyo.

  • Ginza Six Opens

    The latest Mori megaplex finally opened its doors earlier this week in Ginza, and it’s looking swanky. In terms of branding, what Murakami did for Roppongi Hills, Ginza Six instead gets a dotted Yayoi Kusama treatment. Take a look at a few of the highlights from Time Out Tokyo — the rooftop terrace is supposed to…

  • Ancien and the Magic Tablet

    I mentioned last year really wanting to see the movie Hirune Hime (seems that the official English title is now Ancien and the Magic Tablet), and here’s a review of the film over at Time Out Tokyo. Considering that it’s directed by Kenji Kamiyama, who was behind Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex and…

  • Koffee Mameya

    Omotesando Koffee is back, sorta. I was sad to hear about its closing back in 2015, but Eiichi Kunitomo is not only back with a new shop at the exact same location (in the back streets of Harajuku/Aoyama), but with a twist as well. Koffee Mameya is more interested in selling you beans than serving coffee —…

    I remember being interested in this People Make Places project when it first came out — but I wasn’t blogging at the time — and now I’m reminded of it thanks to this great big review for Time Out Tokyo (even better, it’s written by my old friend Sophie Knight).

  • Edit Tokyo

    I’ve always liked the concept of Shimokitazawa’s B&B (book & beer), and now they’re expanding with a temporary (until March of next year) space in Ginza under the name Edit Tokyo, on the 6th floor of the Sony Building. The focus will be on publications that focus on Tokyo, and it’ll include a selection of…

  • Sumida Hokusai Museum

    Opening in Ryogoku this month (on the 22nd, to be exact) is the Sumida Hokusai Museum. Here’s a description from Time Out Tokyo: Spending a day in Ryogoku is set to become even more of a necessity for tourists from this November, when the neighbourhood that already houses the Edo-Tokyo Museum and the Kokugikan will see…

  • Tokyo Geek Bars

    Time Out Tokyo has a fun list of geeky bars in Tokyo, topped with the classic 16 Shots video game-themed bar (pictured).
