When I was in Tokyo a few months ago, I was invited to join a small group for a Tokyo Night Life tour. The tour was split into two nights to encompass as much variety as possible. Given how Japan is a country of wild trends and unheard-of-anywhere-else cultural phenomena, I went into it not knowing entirely what to expect.
Night 1, highlighted in this video, provided a good taste of what downtown Tokyo has to offer. The night was comprised of a visit to a popular indoor food market, watching a variety show that incorporated stories of Japan’s history (much of which was unfortunately lost in translation), a refined sake tasting, and a nightclub that appealed to a crowd younger than any of us in the group. It was a great sampling of what downtown has to offer, and gave each of us a chance to decide for ourselves what we’d be interested in visiting again in the future.⠀
Reflections of Night 2 to come. Also, this is the first video compilation I’ve ever made!
