Japanese events typically operate under two themes: old meets new and East meets West. The latter usually means a plate of sushi with a side of fried potatoes. The former is easier to pull off in a country with a history that stretches back multiple millennia.

From learning traditional Japanese dance to partying with Ibiza DJs to centennial celebrations, make this weekend one for the ages.
