A friendly and festive gathering in the gardens of the French Institute of Tokyo
Bonjour France invites you to share the festive open-air party tradition of the guinguette in the picturesque gardens of the French Institute in Tokyo.
A constant source of inspiration for numerous paintings and movies, the Guinguette is an undeniable symbol of the French cultural heritage and lifestyle.
Originally, Guinguette described a popular cabaret near the river Seine which was at once a restaurant, a dance hall, and a bar, and where French people used to drink the “guinguet”, a typical white wine. This type of business declined in the 50’s to enjoy a renaissance recently as a trendy place.
Come rediscover the emotions of the old days as you taste savory plates elaborated by the French Institute’s Brasserie and sip delicious wine and champagne.
This evening will also be the opportunity to discover new tunes through a private concert by “Les Délinquante”. This French feminine duo of delightfully surprising accordionists play, sing and laugh with the audience, and lighten up the stage with their happy energy.
For the merriest, a DJ will make you dance for the rest of the night to the rhythm of French music.
This event is open to everyone, members and non-members of the French Chamber. Feel free to forward this invitation!
