Tokyo by Way of the Metro North: Japan Week at Grand Central Station

While you’re making your daily slog through the Metro North’s labyrinthine and somewhat functional trains and subways, this week you can at least have a small reprieve to the far off country of Japan. Japan Week returns to Vanderbilt Hall in Grand Central Station from March 14 - 17.

Organized by JNTO (Japan National Tourism Organization), Japan Week is a free event that is open to the public showcasing the latest in Japanese culture, food, and modern art.  This year’s Japan Week features a 3D Trick Art installation, in which visitors can get their pictures taken in installations that use optical illusions to make it look like you’re carrying a sumo wrestler along Asakusa, perched on top a bowl of ramen, or carrying an Omikoshi shrine during a festival. Companies and vendors such as Itoen, Ootoya Japanese Restaurant, and Tokyo Otaku Mode will also have booths during the week.
