Welcome to Paradise: Hateruma in Okinawa seen on a Maction Planet Tokyo Private Tour

Tokyo ON #043: Welcome to Paradise

Maction Planet Radio brings you another episode of Tokyo ON, our flagship show. Welcome to Paradise!

Paradise found! Intrepid adventurer and Maction Planet Resident DJ Royce Leong stumbles through the concrete jungle of Shibuya in the dead of night to bring you the latest sounds from the World’s Greatest Metropolis with tracks from SIRUP, TAMTAM and STUTS. However, he has yet to solve the mystery of Japanese artists’ obsession with capital letters.

Royce also debates the wisdom of remakes and sequels, reminisces over the glory days of Puffy AmiYumi and muses on the concept of a perfect place.

Grab a drink, welcome to paradise, and take a little journey into musical utopia by tuning into this fantastical episode of Tokyo ON.

By the way, our featured image comes from Hateruma in Okinawa, Japan’s southernmost inhabited island, where Mac recently guide on a Maction Planet Pan-Japan Tour.

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:
