Oz wine, photography

In commemoration of the 2006 Australia-Japan Year of Exchange, Otemachi Cafe in Tokyo is currently hosting an Australia Festival. The festival features a wine evening tonight (Oct. 6, 7:30 p.m.-8:30 p.m.). The first 50 people to arrive can enjoy Australian wines for free.

A free photography exhibition by National Geographic’s Sam Abell is also part of the festival and runs through Oct. 13, showcasing 30 of Abell’s photographs that capture Australia’s often spectacular nature. A draw will also be held for the chance to win round-trip tickets to down under. The fest takes place at Otemachi Cafe, Otemachi Building 1F, 1-6-1 Otemachi, Chiyoda-ku, Tokyo (open weekdays 9:30 a.m.-7 p.m.).
