Lexus is celebrating of London’s growing Japanese food, drink and cultural scene at the Japan Week Festival from Monday 27 September to Sunday 3 October 2021 .
A range of pop-up experiences will be hosted at The Lexus Takumi Townhouse, which is located at Stables X, Seven Dials, in Covent Garden, during Japan Week. The Townhouse is an exhibition space inspired by a traditional Japanese house and will host a variety of activities during the week, reflecting the spirit of omotenashi (hospitality) which is central to the Lexus brand. For example, there will be a tattoo-inspired interpretation of the UX compact luxury SUV, created by leading London tattoo artist Claudia De Sabe as a tribute to the takumi craftsmanship and traditional Japanese artistry that is applied to every Lexus car.
De Sabe will demonstrate her techniques at the festival by “tattooing” a UX bonnet, working in the calm, surroundings of a Zen Garden. Visitors will also be able to see Lexus’ first all-electric model, the UX 300e on display at the Takumi Townhouse.
Other activities at Japan Week include:
- KANPAI Sake tasting where Co-founder Tom Wilson and his team tell their story of the UKs first Sake Brewery, describe their production process and present a seasonal limited edition Sake
- Workshops to master the Japanese Art of Origami With Coco Sato
- Ueshima Japanese coffee lounge, with hosted sessions from their Coffee Master
