Shinbashi Culinary Entertainment

Step into Tokyo’s newest theme pub, the Kaiju Sakaba in Shimbashi! While some people may already be thrilled by reading the name of the place, others might pause and wonder: what does that even mean? “Sakaba” simply means bar or tavern. “Kaiju” can be translated to “strange beast,” and technically refers to a Japanese film genre.

Yakyu: Baseball in Japan

Baseball may be known as America's pastime, but did you know the sport is also extremely popular in Japan? Today, baseball is one of the most popular sports in Japan, where it is known as ‘yakyu.’ Baseball fans in Japan enjoy tournaments of both amateur and professional teams. Baseball has a very distinctive place in the life of Japanese people. Sports stadiums like the Tokyo Dome, the Jingu Stadium in Tokyo, or the Hanshin Koshien Stadium in Osaka draw crowds of people whenever a game takes place. Interestingly, instead of using a Japanese variation of the English word for baseball (typically, words of foreign origin are transcribed using the katakana writing system), the Japanese created an entirely new word, ‘yakyu’ as a name for the sport. The kanji for yakyū (野球) literally means "field ball."
