Residents gather on a balmy day for an early summer grill

The beginning of summer in Tokyo, before the real heat and humidity comes to the fore, is one of the nicest times to be outside in the city. It makes for a perfect setting to enjoy food al fresco and lively conversation. And that’s what residents of Azabu Gardens were able to experience on May 18, at an early summer grill held on the Roof Deck.

Halloween took a while to become popular in Japan, but since it has been embraced, the country has taken to it with enthusiasm. Halloween items and decorations can be found everywhere in the leadup to the holiday, and costume parades and street parties mark the occasion in cities throughout Japan.

Azabu Gardens residents learned a new skill from an ikebana expert

The weather has started to change, with the sun making a more regular appearance and the flowers coming out to bloom. While the pandemic lingers, it may feel like leaving the house to enjoy a stroll in the park could be too risky. So, to bring spring into the homes of the Azabu Gardens residents, the staff organized an online ikebana (flower arranging) class.
