Japanese food culture, Food event in Tokyo, Japanese unique ingredients and classes
I've heard "Arakicho" in Yotsuya area, my neighborhood, but have never visited there.
Arakicho is well known for a bar district. My family has early bird life style so I prefer to stay at home in the evening.
Today, I was walking around with my son, who likes do magics. I've been wanted to bring my son to a magic bar in Arakicho.
While we were looking for the magic bar, we walked through cozy alleys in the district and encountered many impressive science there.
The day was held local bon dance festival. I heard the special music somewhere around the area. My son and I saw the little shrine with beautiful lanterns with foxes. This shrine is for a god of harvests, later business.
Many lanterns decollated along the street. There are many bars, Izakaya and casual restaurants in the street.
I saw on TV about the bar named Vowz bar before. The bartender and the staff are all priests and they serve the drinks and also talk with the guests.
The TV show introduced the bar very fascinatingly. I will visit next time.....
Finally we found the bar at the corner of the little building.
We saw stunning magic show and individual table magic. My son was so exited to the magician!
Thank you for the great evening!

I wen to Tokyo Mid Town to visit dentist for dental check up. I found interesting summer event there and love to share. Some of them relates to Japanese custom and culture and the foreign visitors might enjoy there together.
There are some craft workshops for kids which offer daily from 11 am to 6 pm.
Ashimizu Water bath for foot to chill your body.
The picture is a image of Japanese warm food bath. The facility is often seen near Onsen hot springs.
The one in Tokyo Midtown is cold water food bath. As you can imagine soaking the food in cold water make body chill. I'm sure it is comfortable in 35 ℃ outdoor! I didn't have enough time today so I didn't experience but I will come back next time visiting.
There are digital art garden and wind chime shade are beautiful. If you are getting tired of the warm weather, it is worth to visit to have something fun.
