A “farewell party” for the late Japanese television personality E.H. Eric will be held at the Capitol Tokyu Hotel in Tokyo on Saturday, organizers said Monday.

The organizers said the memorial service for Eric, who died of Parkinson’s disease at his home in Hawaii on Aug. 17, will start at 11:30 a.m.

Eric, whose real name was Taibi Okada, was born in France to a Japanese father and Danish mother.
