2011 was a year with many notable happenings, and we wanted to share some of what happened at Lets Party Tokyo. We’d also like to thank our wonderful clients who have made generous contributions to our Tohoku Charity projects, and also made our progress in 2011 possible.
2011 Lets Party Tokyo Highlights
– We made 7 trips (some spanning 3-4 days) to Tohoku cities that have been affected by the quake, tsunami and nuclear disaster. We were able to visit, Aizuwakamatsu, Aizumisato, Yamamoto town, Miyako city, Koriyama Big Pallet, Minamisouma city, Higashimatsushima, Kamaishi city, and Rikuzentakata. We delivered 5 van loads of supplies and performed at over 20 evacuation centers. To see info on our charity projects click here.
– We had a total of 118 shows in 2011,(excluding charity shows) that’s 27 more shows than in 2010.
– In October we launched a new party program, The Pirate Show, which has been quite popular.
We want to thank all the wonderful people we’ve had the pleasure of working with over the years, and we look forward to having fun partying with you this year as well.
We’ve been wanting to make a program like this for a while now, and we’re happy to say that it’s almost ready. The Pirate Party program will be an adventure filled program which we’re sure your child and all your young guests will enjoy.
The details of the Pirate Program will be posted here on our blog, and will also be listed along with our other services here. If you just can’t wait and want the details of this brand-new party program you can call us at: 080 3272 5194 or you can write us at : email@example.com
We were recently contacted by one of the managers of DHL Japan, for a project that is in the works to help the children in the Tohoku region. School Cones for Japan started out as an idea by a boy in Germany who wanted to help the children in Japan who have been affected by the quake, tsunami and nuclear crisis. We’re happy to be helping with this project to deliver 1,000 school cones, which will be filled with needed items, plus maybe some fun stuff for school aged children up north.
The great thing about this project is that it started out as an idea by a boy in Germany, but has now grown to have children from 6 countries participating in this project.
The plan is to deliver these to schools on December 6th, and also bring our show of magic and balloon art to make it an even more fantastic day for the children. We’ll be posting updates, so stay tuned. For more information on School Cones for Japan, check out their website: http://www.schoolcones-for-japan.com/
We had the pleasure of performing at some fantastic Family Day events last month, at Lenovo Japan, Infosys Japan, Hogan Lovells, and Daiwashoken. With families back in Tokyo after the summer holidays, it seemed like the right time to host Family Day events, where spouses and children are able to see where dad works and have some fun while their at it.
Our performance varied from office to office, but during each of our Family Day shows, we organized some fun action games that would include the parents as well as the kids.
Watching the parents during the “Balloon Loop Relay”, and fencing with balloon swords while blind-folded, had the whole room cheering with excitement. We also had a great time performing our magic, making balloons and painting some cool face-paint designs.
One of the great things about these events, is that it can be a wonderful opportunity for managers and employees to bond together in a relaxed atmosphere. The children can also get some great entertainment and enjoy a memorable day at their dad or mom’s workplace.
The wonderful people at International School of English in Tama Plaza invited us again for the Tama Plaza summer festival, which was held on July 30th and 31st. We had the pleasure of passing out balloons, putting on our magic show and also helped to pass out promotional material for their school to all those who passed in front of the school.
Though there were a lot of stalls on the street, the event organizers said that the biggest crowd was always in front of ISE. We had a constant crowd of customers, which gave ISE staff plenty of time to talk to those interested in learning English.
If you’re interested in hiring us for a promotional event, contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org or call us at: 080-3272-5194

Thanks to your generous support and encouragement, during our 3 day trip we were able to visit and perform our show at 7 evacuation centers, and drop off supplies at 3 other centers.
We traveled a total of 1,003 km, and were able to deliver all the donated items. Some items we delivered direct to evacuation centers in Fukushima, most of the clothes, lotion and assorted items were delivered to 3 locations in Yamamotocho, Miyagi. We passed on the blankets to a volunteer team we worked with, who were heading to Sendai, as the center there needed them.
Most of the people we performed for were evacuated from around the Daichi nuclear power plant in Fukushima. Several mothers thanked us for making the children laugh and smile, she said that they haven’t known if it’s ok to laugh and smile, but she’s happy to see them happy after our show. We are so thankful for this chance to meet with and to perform for those affected by the earthquake and tsunami, and we hope that we’ll be able to make another trip to encourage many others.

Yuki and Sam will be heading up to Iwate prefecture tonight as we have at least 3 more shows at evacuation centers on Monday. It’s a short trip, but we’re hoping to encourage as many as we can.
We’re planning to take a van load of much needed supplies to evacuation centers in Fukushima and surrounding areas on April 2nd. We’ll also put on a simple show of magic and balloon art for the children at these centers. Our hope is that the supplies that have been donated can reach the centers where they are most needed, and that our show will help to relieve stress and help to cheer up the children who are at these centers.
We will be picking up donated Rossignol Ski jackets (8 boxes), 100 towels, and have already received warm blankets and other items from our neighbors. We’re very thankful for the generosity and encouragement from our friends which is making this trip possible. We’ll be posting updates on our trip to Fukushima here on this blog.
Our thoughts and prayers are with all those affected by the East Japan Earthquake, Tsunami, and Nuclear Crisis.
We ourselves feel that what we are doing is just a drop in the ocean. But the ocean would be less because of that missing drop.
Over the last 10 years, Let’s Party Tokyo performers have been actively involved in various charity projects from visiting retirement homes, performing for special needs children and organizing present drives. Which is why we were happy to donate our time and services when a member of Room to Read gave us an opportunity to help with their upcoming fundraiser.
We’ll be donating a 60 minute program, where 2 clowns will perform comedy magic, make fantastic balloons, and lead exciting games. Our show will be auctioned at the Room to Read 2011 Gala Dinner Fundraiser on April 9th, which will be held at Tokyo American Club.
