Friday | Saturday | Sunday


Hiroshi Sugimoto
Today's your last chance to check out the latest show by photographic trickster Hiroshi Sugimoto, which centres on his shots of iconic works of 20th century fashion as worn by mannequins, rather than real people. Read more

Todd James
Also finishing up in Tokyo today is the first solo Japan exhibition by Todd James, a self-taught painter who successfully navigated the leap from New York's street art scene to the world of fine art. Read more

Shimokitazawa Indie Fanclub
Ever wondered what a Japanese SXSW might look like? Head to Shimokitazawa today and you can find out, as over 120 indie acts play at 15 different music venues scattered around the neighbourhood. Read more

Candi Staton
The soulful voice of 'Young Hearts Run Free' and 'You Got The Love' fame, Candi Staton is still on remarkably fine form at the age of 72. Catch up with the Southern chanteuse at Billboard Live this evening. Read more

Kyary Pamyu Pamyu
Judging from her Twitter feed, Kyary Pamyu Pamyu hasn't had a proper day off for about six months now. The kookily attired singer plays an extra date at Shibuya AX tonight, after last month's sold-out national tour. Read more

Fuglen Tokyo
If you're in the mood for a Sunday evening cocktail, Fuglen is one of our current favourites. The Norwegian import serves exquisite tipples on a backstreet near Yoyogi Park; try the ginger daiquiri – it's a winner. Read more

Bakuon Film Festival 2012
Tokyo's noisiest film festival is currently blowing eardrums (and a few minds) at Kichijoji Baus Theater. Head there today for amped-up screenings of films including Enter the Dragon and Piranha 3D. Read more

Movie Day
It's the first day of the month, meaning you can get ¥1,000 tickets at most cinemas in Tokyo. Check our Film page for details of what's on, including new openings The Rum Diary and We Need To Talk About Kevin. Read more
