Love Earth Thanks Event In Yoyogi, Tokyo, Saturday July 12

This should be a lot of fun.

Moving on from the success of the Earth Day events...

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. 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 good selection of herbivorous eats. Time Out

...now we also get Love Thanks Earth in Tokyo!

Or is it Love Earth Thanks?

This is a gathering that has already held festivals in Fukuoka, Kyoto and Wakayama this year.

And it just gets better and better.

So, what to expect? Lots of music, healthy food, and inspiration from NGOs (Non-Governmental Organizations) like Vegetarian Society of Japan.

NPOs (Non-Political Organizations) is another term often used, while some of us joke that we really are "non-governable organizations..."

Yoyogi is in the very center of cool Tokyo, near Harajuku and Shibuya stations.

Just south of the huge park.

Have a great weekend!

Cool. Though I can think of few things less political than an NPO.

LOL. Some people call us "Civil Society" but we are often rather uncivil...
