Midtown Summer

Tokyo Midtown has a packed programme of summer fun this year. If you want to take it easy, cool down at Midtown Garden’s Ashimizu area. The stream here has been transformed into a foot bath, open between 2pm and 8pm (closed Tue). It can accommodate up to 50 people at a time and best of all, it’s free. Towels are sold for ¥100 each, but of course, you can always bring your own. At the nearby outdoor Chandon Secret Garden Midpark Lounge (5pm-10pm, Sat, Sun and hols 12noon-10pm, ends August 28), you’ll enjoy pretty, Instagrammable meals and drinks surrounded by fairy lights, lanterns and lots of greenery. Go for the Perfect Serve (¥1,200), a slightly sweet and refreshing cocktail made with Chandon Garden Spritz sparkling wine and enhanced with a slice of orange and rosemary. Food-wise, there’s a fresh and bright caprese salad with navel oranges and colourful tomatoes (¥900) as well as a mango or strawberry kakigori (¥1,200; also available with Chandon topping).
