Tokyo ON #030: Ski Ski
Thursday 25th January 2018 was the coldest day in Tokyo in 48 years. With the recent heavy snow hitting the World’s Greatest Metropolis, Maction Planet Resident DJ Royce Leong spins a topical selection of skiing themed tunes from Japanese film and TV. Featuring songs from the 60’s through to today, we take a look at the imagery and sounds of winter skiing with 広瀬香美, GLAY, B’z and more while talking about movies, ski booms and marketing campaigns (again with the collaborations!). Stay warm and enjoy some of Japan’s all-time favourite winter songs with Tokyo ON.

Maction Planet runs Tokyo Music Tours, which we brand “Maction Planet Radio Tours”, introducing people to the varied and diverse range of music in The World’s Greatest Metropolis. Tokyo’s music scene can be difficult to crack for visitors, due to the language barrier and the sheer breadth and depth of the scene. Concerts, gigs, club nights across every conceivable genre, homegrown, traditional, modern and internationally-influenced… the variety is outstanding. In most cases there is no English-language information available for these amazing events, and that is where we can help.
Like everything at Maction Planet, your Tokyo Music Tour can be fully-customised around the rest of your time touring The World’s Greatest Metropolis. Click here for one example – Cherry Blossom viewing followed by an amazing gig from Tokyo Discotheque Orchestra.
