The 2020 Summer Olympics has been put back on the calendar for 2021, but travel to see the city and games in person has not. Yet while the games will come and go, the beauty and joy of experiencing Tokyo will be there for us next year.
The House of Suntory, which makes beloved whiskies like Hibiki and Yamazaki, is helping two people experience the grand side of Tokyo in 2022 by giving away a five day, four night stay at a luxury resort along with a round-trip flight, ground transportation when they get there, and a distillery tour or “Suntory Time” whisky experience. There’s also a stipend of $2,500 included to bring the total estimated value of the trip to $30,000. It’s like the best parts of Lost in Translation (the whisky and fancy digs) without the midlife crisis (probably).
