Tokyo ON #044: New Era

The times they are a changin’… and Tokyo ON is right in the thick of the action, bringing you the latest in soul and hip-hop from the likes of JiLL-Decoy association, IN-SIST and Mime.

Host and Maction Planet Resident DJ Royce Leong also riffs on salient topics including his opinion on why the Heisei era has been so turbulent, recent corporate scandals and a bit on how technology has changed social interaction.

Don’t let the closure of Tsukiji get you down – tune into Tokyo ON and let these fresh tunes ease your transition into the new era.

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:
