Tokyo ON #031: Love and the City
Valentine’s Day in Japan is a unique cultural experience that revolves around chocolate, be it buying, making, giving or receiving, as a proxy for communicating romantic feelings to others.
Maction Planet Resident DJ Royce Leong explores the topic in depth, discussing the latest trends, the traditional customs and the emotions involved leading up to February 14.
Backed by a soundtrack of Valentine’s Day related tunes from 国生さゆり, miwa, chay and more, this episode of Maction Planet Radio’s flagship show is full of chocolatey goodness.
Have a break, have a listen to Tokyo ON!
Our tour guests, listeners to Maction Planet Radio and readers of our blog know that one of our many goals is to open up Tokyo’s diverse music culture to visitors. This can be difficult to crack 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.
We run Tokyo Music Tours, which we brand “Maction Planet Radio Tours”, introducing people to the varied range of music in this amazing city. Like everything we do, your Tokyo Music Tour can be fully customised around the rest of your time touring The World’s Greatest Metropolis.
Some examples include:
- Cherry Blossom viewing followed by an amazing gig from Tokyo Discotheque Orchestra.
- Craft beer, the legacy of the zaibatsu, a cloudy architecture tour from on high, amazing ramen and thumping house music… all in one four hour tour of Tokyo.
- Hotel Koe’s opening party – only 80 premium tickets available – attended after an 8-hour tour of the ins and outs of the western Tokyo.
