Tokyo Immersion Ideas

Immerse Yourself In Tokyo’s Rich History & Innovative Culture!

Let’s take this party to Tokyo, where innovation & technology thrive next to history and tradition. Imagine yourself enjoying a traditional Japanese tea ceremony, a rich cultural tradition believed to maintain a peaceful mind and wash away anxiety. Continue de-stressing at Jochiji Temple and say a prayer for happiness to Hotei, or visit the Kotoku-in Temple to marvel at the giant statue known as the Great Buddha.

When you are ready to amp up the blood flow again, plan a visit to Tokyo’s signature theme park, Sanrio Puroland, also known as Hello Kitty Land. And it’s not your only chance to experience otaku culture! You can jump right in to the wild, colorful explosion of extreme fandom at the robot restaurant, and on entire city streets.

Aside from exhilarating theme parks and famous attractions, Tokyo is known worldwide for its incredible food! Maybe you love tempura, seafood and vegetables fried in a distinctive batter and dipped in a sweet and salty sauce. Today, with just a few ingredients, you can make Yakitori, a simple (yet tasty) chicken skewer dish. Serve over rice. Or if you prefer noodles, we suggest Udon noodles which are excellent in soup and for slurping! Find the recipes here.

When your evening calls for drinks, we have you covered —Tokyo style! How about some sake? Sake is known popularly as rice wine, but its alcohol content is much higher than wine, so it is popularly used in cocktails. One common ingredient to Japanese cocktail is yuzu, a tangy citrus fruit — and there’s so many to choose from! For your Tokyo game night, let’s mellow things out with Matcha, a Japanese green tea powder made from finely powdered dried tea leaves. Hot or cold, this frothy and nourishing tea that is energizing, calming, and delicious. Find the recipe here.


To experience Tokyo is to feel it in the music! Take a listen to J-Pop which became widespread in the 1990s. Drawing influences from Western pop, Hikaru Utada is one of the most iconic names in modern J-Pop. She claims the highest-selling album in Japan for her debut album, First Love. Boy band fans will enjoy Arashi, who rose to fame with a string of hits in the 2000s but stopped recording in 2020. The pop band, Official HIGE DANdism dominated the charts with “Pretender” and has proven to be one of the hottest acts currently. Find our complete playlist here.
