I had the amazing privilege of traveling to Tokyo, Japan last week and I experienced some of the best music I've ever heard! My friends and I travelled to the Jazz Club The Pitt Inn and witnessed some Jazz from outer space ! We then travelled to The Pearl Bar and listened to some incredible jazz piano. I recommend both of these venues if you ever visit Tokyo ! I look forward to my return this Spring for some more musical experiences with friends and family !
The best website for Music in Japan is Jazz in Japan . I found this website while watching youtube videos all about Japan before my trip. One video popped up called Tokyo Eye which is a Japanese television talk show. The episode I found had a guest by the name of Michael Pronko. An American Author living in Tokyo for the past 15 years. He is a professor at Meiji Gakuin University who teaches American literature, culture, film, music & art. This man was fascinating to me so I decided to write him an email. He replied right away with this website and gave me some extra spots to check out !
