Insider Experience: Tokyo rock night

Insider Experience: Tokyo rock night

Delve into Tokyo's vibrant amateur live rock music scene with one of our "Insiders"

Steve Parker, a long-term Tokyo resident and one of our Insider staff, also happens to be a keen guitarist and band front man - the perfect person to take you on a fantastic night tour of Tokyo's amateur rock scene.

Steve will accompany you to a live gig venue - most likely in Tokyo's trendy Koenji or Shimokitazawa districts - places only a local can navigate. Depending on the time of the gig, we'll also include dinner and drinks at a nearby izakaya (Japanese pub) in the great company of Steve who can tell you about all things Tokyo rock.
