OF NOTE

South of the border, Odaiba way

Mexican culture will brighten up Tokyo's Odaiba Sept. 25 and 26 with a culinary and musical celebration of Latin America.

Fiesta Mexicana will kick off at 11 a.m. at the Daiba West Promenade, featuring performances by Mexican and Japanese musicians and dancers at the Plaza del Sol.

The Mexican artists will include Mariachi "Agave," a seven-member mariachi group; Mono Blanco, a five-member music group from Veracruz; pop singer Magos Herrera; the "Guadalajara" dance company, and marimba players from La Universidad Autonoma de Morelos.

Shops and restaurants featuring Mexican goods and cuisine in a section called Calle de Mercado will re-create the atmosphere of a Mexican street.

In another section, the Plaza Mexico, Mexicans living in Japan will demonstrate games played by Mexican children while Mexican clowns perform amid the crowd.

Fiesta Mexicana: 11 a.m.-7 p.m. (till 6 p.m. on the last day), near Daiba Station on the Yurikamome Line, or a five-minute walk from Tokyo Teleport Station on the JR Rinkai Line.
