Tokyo ON #036: Haru Matsuri

Spring is in full swing in The World’s Greatest Metropolis and what better way to enjoy the season than by rocking out, Japan-style!

In this episode of Tokyo ON, Maction Planet Resident DJ Royce Leong takes you around the Kanto plains for an overview of the Japanese Rock Festivals happening in May. He discusses events big and small taking place in Chiba, Saitama, Kanagawa, Tochigi and of course Tokyo. Backed by tracks from a selection of performers including the peggies, Nerd Magnet and Official 髭男dism, Royce provides you with a comprehensive guide to the sonic mania.

Throw on your favorite band T-shirt and get ready to rock with 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:
