At the Martial Arts Hall of Japan “Nippon-budokan”, you can enjoy major martial arts tournaments (national or international), martial arts demonstrations and even concerts (e.g. AKB48 performance)! This impressive building in the heart of Tokyo (Chiyoda ward) has 14.471 places and features many martial arts events with free entrance; it adds a great touch of Japanese culture to everybody’s life or holidays in Tokyo :) Our French travel manager attended diverse martial arts competitions and demonstrations there: aikido, karate, kendo, kyudo, taekwondo…
Check our Japanese calendar to learn about the best events scheduled at the Nippon-budokan in the year 2014, 2015 or 2016 (weekends and public holidays included). Call 03-3216-5100 to learn more if you speak the Japanese language or kindly ask the staff of your hotel to do it for you. Near Kudanshita subway station and Hotel Grand Palace, the Martial Arts Hall of Japan “Nippon-budokan” is the spot “15″ on our map of Tokyo Chiyoda designed for autumn 2014 and winter 2014-2015.
Travel tip: You can also meet or e-mail the Yes in Japan team to get advance tickets for concerts/tournaments, to attend martial arts lessons at a dojo of the annexe or to order a personalized tour linked to martial arts…
Our French travel manager in Japan just enjoyed a cheerful live saxophone concert and delicious Belgian food with 2 friends at Brasserie St. Bernardus (Chiyoda ward, Tokyo). On this cold evening of autumn, the bar/restaurant was warm and full of Japanese people :)
The young but skilled musicians of the HotateQ group, 4 cute Japanese girls studying at Showa University of Music, played the saxophone from 19:00 to 20:45:
As usual, the music was free :) If you wish to enjoy such a concert in Tokyo, check the events schedule of Brasserie St. Bernardus, take the subway or train, get off at Kanda station, walk to Brasserie St. Bernardus, and take a good seat…
You can enjoy live music for one hour at Brasserie St. Bernardus during 2 to 4 concerts every month, usually on Monday or Sunday evenings: saxophone, violin, guitar, drum… There is no “music charge” but the musicians would certainly appreciate a small (or big) donation. Listen to nice live music, get your photo with the Japanese musicians, savour Belgian food and beer, and have a good time with the locals :)
Brasserie St. Bernardus is a Belgian restaurant/bar 1 minute south-west of Kanda train station (Chiyoda ward, Tokyo) and 3 minutes east of Hotel Villa Fontaine Otemachi. Yes in Japan staff had great fun there!
The Yes in Japan team just enjoyed a relaxing live jazz concert and delicious Philly sandwich at The Adirondack Café (Chiyoda ward, Tokyo). The warm room was packed with friendly Japanese music lovers who bought the players’ CDs :)
The Japanese musicians played the piano, guitar, bass, and clarinet from 19:30 to 22:00:
The music charge was only 2.800 yens! To enjoy another great jazz live, get off at Jimbocho subway station and walk to The Adirondack Café next Tuesday evening…
You can enjoy live jazz for two hours at The Adirondack Café every Tuesday evening and the second Saturday of every month; the “music charge” is only 2.800 yens per person. Listen to the music, watch the Japanese musicians, savour the food, and have fun with the locals!
The Adirondack Café is a restaurant/bar 3 minutes east of Jimbocho station (Chiyoda ward, Tokyo). Yes in Japan team members had a great time there :)
