This huge live music hall looks like a hangar, but Akasaka Blitz is actually a first-rate venue for top international and local bands. Many famous Japanese bands and respected indie bands play here to audiences of up to 1,900 cheering fans. The venue also has direct access to Akasaka station, which is very handy for visiors travelling by subway and makes it preferable over many other concert halls. While tickets are usually sold far in advance you might be able to secure some through your hotel concierge.

Golf & Bar Grip
If sitting at a bar while enjoying a drink sounds too predictable, what about experiencing the national passion for golf at the Golf & Bar Grip. The bar has a realistic golf simulator with a 150 inch screen that makes you feel you’re really on the fairway, but you can play a whole round of golf in just under an hour. Booths have gloves and clubs for use and are of course fully serviced by the bar. This is ideal for people who want to play golf in the middle of the city. The use of their golf clubs is included in the price.
