Tokyo ON #051: Back to the Future
Maction Planet Radio’s flagship show Tokyo ON returns and asks “Are you ready for Reiwa?”
It’s an all new era and Tokyo ON is sending you back to the future after our requiem for the Heisei era. As usual, Maction Planet Resident DJ Royce Leong has been in the thick of it at various music events in Tokyo seeking out the latest sounds, and the fruits of his efforts are right here in this episode! Check out what the kids are listening to these days: Showmore, SaToA, Friday Night Plans and more. If you want to know what the latest and greatest is in Japan these days, you’ll just have to tune into 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, 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 west Tokyo.
