Other Things To Do
Karaoke
Private rooms to karaoke are rented at very reasonable rates. You can spend hours with friends, choosing songs to sing from a wide selection that includes U.S. pop songs as well as Japanese pop.
Nightclubs
One particular nightclub that you may want to visit in downtown Tokyo is Lexington Queen in Roppongi. Paris Hilton mentions the club in her book, “How to be an Heiress,” and actor Ben Affleck and musician Tom Morello have been spotted there. The walls of the club are covered in pictures of other celebrity A-listers who have visited.
Festivals
Japan’s peak in festivity occurs at New Years and in the summer. Fireworks mark the summer festivals, as well as games such as “kingyosukui,” a game in which the participant must scoop up a goldfish with a paper net. These festivals are often held in temples or shrines.

Hanami
When the cherry blossoms bloom in the spring, the Japanese take time to smell the roses, or, in this case, watch the flowers, which is called "hanami." Many families sit under the cherry blossom trees for picnics at this time of year.
