Weekender Rent-a-Gent Campaign: Fancy a Date with Our Charming Art Director?


Fancy a date with a charming British gent? For one night only, Tokyo Weekender’s dashing art director is available for hire (actually, for free). He’ll wine and dine you at a luxury hotel restaurant, before explaining the rules of cricket over a tasty cocktail.

Why are we “renting” him out? Because for our upcoming February issue, we’re celebrating all things love related – and also pondering all the bizarre “people for rent” options in Tokyo. The date is set for Wednesday, January 10 at 7:30pm, and your meal and drinks will be on the house. Afterwards, we’ll interview you about the experience, so you can tell us what it was like to “rent” a date in Tokyo.

What else is in it for you? Well, you’ll probably get to learn the secret to making a proper cup of British tea, too.

To bag a date with our handsome gent, all you need to do is send an email to editor@tokyoweekender.com by Wednesday, December 20, and tell us in 50 words why you would like to rent our gent. If we pick you, you’ll be notified via email on December 22.

Note: You will be photographed for the article, which will be published in our February magazine and on our website.
