Webinar "Italy’s and Japan’s culinary Masters"

From: 29/09/2020 3:30 PM
to: 29/09/2020 4:30 PM
Venue: ZOOM Online Webinar / Facebook Live

Special guest from Italy
Viviana Varese
Alice Ristorante (Milan), Head Chief

In 1999 she opened her own "Il Girasole" in Rodigiano. In 2007, she met Sandra Ciciriello and they opened “Alice Ristorante” in Milan. After being awarded 1 Michelin Star in 2011, she became Ambassador Chef at Expo Milano in 2015.

Viviana Varese's cuisine embodies her personality, full of dedication and passion for cooking. It is a fusion of substance and color, while maintaining the balance between reason and impulse.

Special guest from Japan
Masahiro Kasahara
Sanpi-Ryoron (Tokyo), owner

Born in Tokyo in 1972, he grew up looking at his parents who run a yakitori restaurant. After graduating from high school, he trained at “Shougatu-ya Kitcho” for nine years before taking over his family's yakitori restaurant. On the 30th anniversary the restaurant has been temporary closed and in 2004 Kasahara opened his own "Sanpi-Ryoron" in Ebisu. The name of the restaurant is based on the idea that "you don't have to be liked by everyone. It is ok if only the ones who like your food and method comes to visit [...]". It quickly became a very popular restaurant, even hard to make a reservation.

Italia, amore mio! INSIEME

From: 21/11/2020 10:00 AM

Venue: SIDE OMOTESANDO (TBC)

Format

For the past 4 years Italia, amore mio! has showcased the best of Italy to over 500.000 Japanese visitors with over 250 live performances, 300 exhibits, and installations, 150 food stations, cooking-shows, competitions… becoming the largest Italian festival in Japan.

This year we will do all of the above and more in a different format: a central hub in Tokyo will coordinate multiple satellite events scattered all over the city hosted in Italian landmark venues. At the same time, a virtual interactive chat will connect Japan with Italian cities.

Theme 2020 – Insieme

Uncertainty has prevailed in many aspects of our daily life forcing us to stand afar from each other and respect a social physical distance. But emotionally this experience has worked the other way around, giving us the chance to re-evaluate the importance of “the other” and the meaning of togetherness. Together we can make it - and it’s way more fun.

Where: SIDE OMOTESANDO

Rugby Alliance III: Pass the Passion

From: 14/11/2019 12:00 AM
to: 14/11/2019 2:00 PM
Venue: Grand Hyatt Tokyo, Coriander Room

 

The Rugby World Cup (RWC) 2019 has delivered a huge impact for Japan. According to World Rugby, the RWC 2019 has been making records with the biggest ever official merchandise program. Fan engagement is also high, with 270,000 already having attended Fan Zones as of late September, and a 25.5 rating for NTV broadcast of the opening match. The Japan Rugby Football Union has described the RWC 2019’s final whistle as merely the starting point for their ambitious 10-year growth plan, which includes revamping the domestic professional league. We can expect legacy and leverage to be key topics in this session.

Come and join the Rugby Alliance for its third instalment where we will exchange stories from the RWC 2019 from a variety of stakeholders as they explore the impact of the tournament and highlight examples of successes and learnings. With the RWC engaging a broad range of constituents and industries, including accommodation, transport, tourism promotion, sports hospitality, local communities, and the reception of inbound tourists in regional Japan, there are a number of key lessons learned from this major tournament.

With the Tokyo 2020 Olympic and Paralympic Games following soon after the RWC, the international and local business community will be wishing to “pass the passion” from RWC19 to ensure that the Games are a success and demonstrate a return on the significant investment required of the host city and country. This luncheon will provide best-practice examples from official and non-official sponsors to inspire more businesses to participate in the excitement.

Join us on November 14 for what will be a lively and passionate discussion on the power of sports, mega-events, and how they can be leveraged to Japan’s— and all of our—advantage.
