Tokyo Humanities Cafe is back! We're excited to announce the return of our popular cafe series for the first time in three years! Please mark your calendars for Friday, June 9th (19:30 - 21:15).

We'll relaunch in a new venue closer to central Tokyo: Ryozan Park Lounge ( It's 2 minutes' walk from Sugamo Station on the Yamanote line, and 5 minutes from Komagome Station (Namboku Line). The bar has a great atmosphere and food and drinks are available while you listen.

Our four speakers will discuss their humanities careers in a lively and accessible way:

Stephen Wittek (Assistant Professor, Carnegie Mellon University) - "Shakespeare and Virtual Reality"

・Karin Gunnarsson (Photographer / Filmmaker / Storyteller) - "Turned Skyward: Musings on Flight"

Yutaka Kikugawa (Founder and Executive Director, El Sistema Japan) - "Social Action Through Music"

・ Eli K.P. Williams (SF novelist and Japanese literary translator) - "Writing the Endgame of Capitalism: The Jubilee Cycle Trilogy"

Full details (including access map) are available on our website:

We're hoping to get a good turnout, so please come and bring your friends!

Our cafes are free to attend - please just buy at least one drink (or food) to thank the bar for their hospitality in hosting us. We hope to see you there!
