Easter events

I know it is not very common to celebrate easter in Japan, but since more and more easter goods and sweets are in the stores, I thought there might also be some events. Does anybody know of some easter events, preferable in the Kanto area?



I´m a german girl living in the center of Tokyo, but my true love belongs to the countryside of Japan (especially Chiba and Hokkaido). I love traveling Japan and explore hidden areas.
I want to help people with my articles to get in touch with the Japanese culture and all the beautiful places you can explore.

Besides traveling around, I love trains, handcraft and my little rabbits.

    Disneyland and DisneySea usually have Easter events, like special Easter parades or searching for easter eggs in the park. USJ might be doing something as well. Besides that, I have not yet heard of any Easter events though. Might be because Easter season is Sakura season in Japan.

    Looks like there is some kind of Easter event going on in Daikanyama, Tokyo at or near the fancy Tsutaya that they have there. Not sure on the details because it's all in Japanese but the images of the "Easter Choco Art" look quite cool. Here's the url for the event page https://cdeaster.com/

    Sadly the only ones I know about are the Tokyo Disney events and other things held at the Tokyo American Club/military bases to celebrate. I feel like each year Easter seems to be growing here, certainly with items in stores, but there still don't seem to be many events.

    For children or adults? I know of a few Easter events for children in Saitama, egg painting crafts and egg hunts - things like that. I will be adding those type of events to my personal blog (insaitama.com) over the coming weeks. A few of last years are still up on the calendar from last year. They are just small events generally. The Saitama Children's zoo used to have a bigger egg hunt event, but they dropped it about 5 years ago. :-( If I see any events for adults I will let you know. :-)

Your favorite summer getaway spots?

Any favorite places you all have to get away to during the stinking hot summer months? I would love a long weekend away somewhere (ideally cooler!) We did Hakodate/Aomori one summer and really enjoyed it. Would love to hear your suggestions.

Hot water into cold water

I heard or read somewhere that pouring hot water into cold water was not a good thing to do. (I like my water luke warm sometimes) Something to do with religion or dead association with dead people (and Japan does not like that) Have you heard of this? Any sources I could see so I don’t mess up in a critical moment?

Annoying morning futon slapping noise. What time is OK?

There's a middle-aged guy, living in one of the apartments in the building across the street from me, who hangs out his futon between 7 - 8 am and then bangs the sh@*t out of them with one of those stupid plastic slapping devices. Honestly, I want to take it from him and slap him with it instead. Of course, I'll end up doing nothing of the sort, but I find this futon-slapping at that time so annoying and noisy and am astonished that he continues to do it despite his noise echoing down the whole street and him being the only person on the street to do so (at least at that sort of time). If he was in my building I might stick a note through his door or something, but I'm not sure about the protocol of doing that when the culprit is in a different building. I'm also wondering if the 7 - 8 am slot for futon-slapping is a perfectly acceptable one and actually it's me that needs the attitude adjustment. Thoughts?
