The Tokyo 2020 Olympics notches the 100th anniversary of Japan’s first Olympic medals as the country’s tennis players earned two silver medals at the 1920 Games in Antwerp. This weekend marks the 10th anniversary of Hibiya’s Belgian Beer Weekend, so raise a glass of tasty brew before taking in the full range of events happening in Tokyo, from Broadway musicals to modern art exhibitions.
Kick back with live music and DJs and refresh with proper glasses (no plastic here!) of smooth, fruity Belgian beer and authentic Belgian eats.
