1. Deutschland Fest (Roppongi, Tokyo) – Baby and I attended this event last year and really enjoyed the great food and Deutsch Festactivities. We made gapes out of marzipan which was fun and yummy! The Fest is supported by the German Embassy and many German and multi-national photos1companies.  The weather should perfect for a mini Octoberfest in Tokyo. Enjoy a variety of beer, sausages and other German food, while you review German products and enjoy German music. Really a great family outing!
