Autumn in the Train

 

 

In Japan, 14th October is known as “The Railway Day” (Tetsudou-no-hi) to Train Maniacs, as it marks the opening of the country’s first railway back in 1872. To celebrate this special day, JAPAN RAIL CAFE – a travel-themed cafe under railway operator East Japan Railway Company, will unfold the train-themed event “Autumn in the Train” at Tanjong Pagar Centre!

Featuring Japan’s popular experience-themed trains such as “JOYFUL TRAIN SERIES”, the event showcases some exciting activities that one can enjoy inside selected trains during Autumn. Suitable for the working crowd and families, the event will transform Urban Park with a train-like concept with Japanese food, activities and special merchandises relating to Autumn and rail!

Arcade G Session

 

 

 

GSessions is a bi-annual party series that brings together a mix of design, fashion, arts, music and culture all under one roof. And this edition will bring back nostalgia from the past as it will transform Hotel G Singapore into an old-school arcade. You can expect to battle it out with professional enthusiasts in a Dance Dance Revolution dance-off, or trying your luck and skills with the claw machines that may net you prizes from Laneige, Mamonde and Hotel G Singapore. For a test of physical endurance and reaction time, you can challenge yourself by competing in Bishi Bashi! You can do all these while immersed in a night of unadulterated hip hop beats reminiscent of bygone club nights of your wasted youth brought to you by DJ Tang.
