Tokyo ON #046: Tour de Tokyo I
Maction Planet Radio returns with another episode of their flagship show, Tokyo ON! This time, its the inaugural Tour de Tokyo!
Join us on Tokyo ON for a Tour de Tokyo led by Maction Planet Founder and Lead Guide, Mac!
In the first episode of this series, Mac takes you on an aural (and geographically accurate) tour around Tokyo with no train changes! Starting from landing at Haneda, Mac takes us to Asakusa and finishes in Shibuya at 5pm, with each stop along the way marked by a song representative of the area. This episode is of course full of the fascinating tales and amazing facts which characterise our 100% 5* rated Maction Planet tours, accompanied by great tunes from Shishido Kavka, Suda Masaki, Takamine Hideko and more.
Sit back, relax, and let the experts take you around the World’s Greatest Metropolis as only they know how!
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, where everything old is new again!
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.
