  • Find Your Element Workshop ’18 Fall Season: Find Your Element Workshop is the best workshop Tokyo has to offer which is led by top experts from a variety of fields and it starts Oct. 3rd. FYE Leaders are carefully selected each Season to best equip and empower you with necessary life skills in order to maximize your true potentials. The 12-week Fall 2018 evening program is held in Omotesando and is comprised of two components: 1. Self-discovery for “grounding,” facilitated by trained life coaches/facilitators, and 2. “Inspirational” workshops led by top experts from various fields to share their personal journeys and life skills.
    • One such inspirational workshop on Oct. 17th will be led by FEW Sponsor and President Emeritus Sarah Furuya of Sarah Furuya Coaching. The topic of her workshop is “Mind Your Own Business,” which will allow participants to create a more free, loving, relaxing, and powerful approach to life – creating boundaries around how far to get involved in other people’s business so you can focus more on your own.
  • Tokyo International Players (TIP) – Tokyo International Players presents, as their season opener, Bertolt Brecht’s famous parable THE GOOD PERSON OF SZECHWAN in English. Shen Teh, a kind-hearted woman from the slums, sets out on a new life after receiving a gift of one thousand silver dollars from the gods. But it isn’t long before needy neighbors, a questionable love affair, and abandonment by the gods threaten to overwhelm the beleaguered Shen. Can anyone be truly good, or must we all rely on a little ruthlessness and cunning to get by? From Oct. 18th-Oct. 21st, come see the largest, oldest English-language theatre company in Japan perform a true classic of the Western theatrical canon.
