Earth Day Tokyo 2012

Globe-straddling eco event Earth Day has found a particularly receptive audience in Japan, where the two-day gathering in Yoyogi Park consistently draws over 100,000 people each year. It's an opportunity for charities, NPOs and eco-conscious businesses to flaunt their wares and draw new recruits, but many people just go to enjoy the art, vibes and free music, which this year includes jazz pranksters Ego-Wrappin', folk veteran Tokiko Kato and nyatiti player Anyango (check the timetable on the website for details). If you're one of the capital's long-suffering vegetarians, too, you owe it to yourself to pay a visit to the Earth Day Kitchen zone for a wide selection of herbivorous eats.
