Foreign Executive Women (FEW) & Beers for Books at Suji’s, Roppongi

by admin on Aug.10, 2009, under events

Beers for Books is a simple and fun fundraising idea created to raise money for Room to Read’s local language publishing programs. This Thursday, August 6th, the Foreign Executive Women (FEW) of Tokyo organized a Beers for Books night at Suji’s American restaurant in Roppongi. 100 yen was donated for every drink bought at the event. These pictures were taken early in the evening as the party was just warming up.

Beers for Books is a global volunteer organization. To learn more, please visit the Beers for Books website or join the Facebook Group. Please also check out The FEW Japan Website.

This Tuesday, we trekked to Harajuku to bring you an inside look at Danny Choo’s Tokyo Figure Show on the 9th floor of the H&M Building. This figure exhibit opened on August 4th and will be on display each day through August 9th from 1pm-6pm. Figures displayed are from the Good Smile Company, and the exhibit features the newly-completed Danny Choo mascot figure, Mirai Figma.

The view from the 8th and 9th floor of the H&M building at the Tokyo Figure Show is truly amazing, and it’s a nice way to cool off from the summer heat with free air conditioning, a posh place to relax, and free Vitamin Water courtesy of Glaceau. Danny’s show is actually the 4th in a series of 6 weekly exhibits taking place at the H&M Building while promoting Vitamin Water sales. If you are in Japan, you should be able to buy 5 flavors of Vitamin Water in select Sunkus, 7/11, pharmacies, and vending machines as of the 4th of August.
