06/14, Arts Culture Tourism from Tokyo (Ueno Park, Philippines Expo 2023)

Domestic producer prices increased for the 27th straight month, rising by more than 5 percent from last year. A Vietnamese student has been arrested on suspicion of cutting hair without a license at his Tokyo home, serving as many as 3,000 customers since April 2021 while raking in a tidy profit. Meanwhile, the Tokyo Metropolitan Government has labeled Shibuya’s Dogenzaka a ‘Townscape Regeneration District’ that is part of redevelopment currently taking place around the main JR station. And with this year marking the 125th anniversary of Philippine independence from Spanish colonial rule, Ueno Park last weekend played host to Philippine Expo 2023 with a three day festival coinciding with the country's June 12th Independence day. We drop in on Ueno Park, transformed into Manila for three days of celebrations.
