Japan launches the Premium Friday!

If you live and work in Japan, you must be aware of the country's long working hours. Large amounts of monthly overtime is a common thing, and it is not rare for Japanese workers to only take half of their paid leaves entitlements, which has long been an issue. But here is the good news: this February 24th, the government, along with some business groups, will launch the Premium Friday campaign. In an attempt to curb the country's long work hours and boost consumption, it has decided to let workers leave at 3pm on the last Friday of every month, to start their weekend earlier than ever. So far, the number of companies that will participate in the campaign is still unknown, but you might very well be among the lucky ones to start their last weekend of the month earlier! And if this is the case, how will you spend this extra free time? Among the obvious answers are shopping, of course, but also travelling, and for those who cannot go too far, fun and exciting activities such as our Escape Games! Come and share an hour of fun with you colleagues, friends or family: solve puzzles and...

Tokyo Marathon 2017!!

For many runners in Japan, the Tokyo Marathon is THE event of the year. Dating back to 1981, the Tokyo Marathon originally consisted of two separate events: the Tokyo International Marathon, which took place in even-numbered years, and the Tokyo - New York Friendship International Marathon, which took place on odd-numbered years. In 2007, those two events were combined into one, to become the Tokyo Marathon as we know it today. Taking place at the end of February, it is one of the six World Marathon Majors (along with the Boston, London, Berlin, Chicago and New York City Marathons), and gathers thousands of participants each year from all around the world. This year's Marathon will be different, however, as the organizers have decided to modify the course for a more symbolic and impressive finish line: instead of ending at Tokyo Big Sight as years past, the race will now finish at Tokyo Station's Gyoko-dori, with the participants running in front of the Imperial Palace for the last stretch. One thing that hasn't changed though, is that the course will still run through Tokyo's traditional Asakusa, and of course, we'll be there, waiting for you! If you plan on going...

It’s Setsubun at EHT!

Out with the Demon, in with the Fortune: it's Setsubun! Every year, Japan celebrates Setsubun on February 3rd, a day before Spring, according to the old Japanese calendar. On that day, a special ritual is performed to cleanse away all the evil of the previous year, and drive away the evil spirits for the year to come: it's Mamemaki. Litteraly "bean scattering", Mamemaki sees the male head of the household wearing a demon mask and being chased out of the house, while the rest of the family throws roasted beans at him and slam the door behind him, chanting "Oni wa soto! Fuku wa uchi!" (see title). To ensure luck, the roasted beans are then eaten: one for each year of one's life. For this Setsubun, Escape Hunt Tokyo prepared something special for you: from Wednesday February 1st until Friday February 3rd, the groups who manage to escape our rooms will get a surprise as a reward! Come and celebrate Setsubun with us, and... beware of the Demon!
