Restaurant Broken Heart

If you were gifted with nothing but bitter disappointment on Valentine's and White Day this year, here's some sweet relief. Harajuku food-and-art gallery Rocket is staging a typically bizarre event this weekend, where only people who 'understand the pain of a broken heart' are welcome. There'll be a different bunch of creative industry bods offering succour to lovelorn Tokyoites on each day: confectioner Rika Fukuda is whipping up a tonic for broken hearts on Friday (reservation required), while a trio of editors and art directors will be dispensing medicine of the alcoholic kind on Saturday. Come Sunday, one-time junior geisha Hanayo is set to transform the place into a snack bar for sob stories, before writer and manga artist Chokkaku Shibuya cures the blues with a night of '90s pop on Monday (don't ask). The final day of the event, meanwhile, sees Rocket transformed into a 'Dream Broken Hearted Theme Park', complete with appropriately themed books, fortune telling, auctions, film screenings and more.
