Experience the Summer Lifestyle of Tokyoites through Japanese Food, Music and Beer
27-30 June, Tanjong Pagar Centre L1 Urban Park
SINGAPORE- 8 June 2018, East Japan Railway Company (JR East) announces that its first Singapore venture, JAPAN RAIL CAFE, will hold a summer event titled “TOKYO SUMMER PARK” from 27th to 30th June, 12pm-10pm. The event will take place at the Urban Park, a sheltered event area outside the travel-themed café located on level 1 of Tanjong Pagar Centre.
Experience Summer like a Tokyoite
To provide a refreshing experience for Singaporeans apart from the usual festive “Matsuri” where traditional contents would typically take place, “TOKYO SUMMER PARK” focuses on the modern part of Japan which is best represented by the urban lifestyle of a Tokyoite. Bringing local Japan lovers closer to the daily lives of Tokyoites, “TOKYO SUMMER PARK” presents a series of programmes alongside tasty
Japanese street food by various Japanese vendors and Kirin’s special Frozen Beer!
One of the event highlights to be featured at “TOKYO SUMMER PARK” is beer yoga, combining Japanese’s favourite drink and one of the top popular sports at the same time. Participants can pre-register online to join in a paid beer yoga session offered by local fitness studio Trim Fitness on either 27th June or 30th June.
From 8pm to 9.30pm daily, visitors can also enjoy a different list of themed music arranged by local Japanese DJ SHIN. On the final day 30th June, Japanese entertainment company Amuse Entertainment will also be putting up 2 special stage segments in conjunction with their upcoming event “Japan Park Singapore 2018” in August at Suntec City.
Recreating the common sight of rooftop beer gardens that can be found in Tokyo during summer, “TOKYO SUMMER PARK” will serve beer and various street foods like mini burgers, fried skewers “Kushikatsu” and pan-fried dumplings “gyoza” that are known to be great pairings with beer for Japanese people! Beer to be served would not be the usual beer; Kirin will be serving frozen beer that has a cold frosty foam on
top to keep the beer cold for a longer time especially at outdoor events. Visitors can look forward to chilling out at the space with food, music and beer every evening during the four-day event.
