The KFC Colonel Sanders spotted on a Maction Planet Tokyo Bespoke Tour

Tokyo ON #027: Finger Lickin’ Xmas

The Maction Planet Radio team are back to help get you ready for Christmas. For a country with little religious background to the season, Japan still manages to do Christmas arguably better than anywhere else on the planet! Tokyo shines with millions of illumination lights which transform The World’s Greatest Metropolis into a glittering jewel, and the hyper-consumerism is rampant – even more than normal! While spinning festive tunes from AI, TRF and SEKAI NO OWARI, your hosts Royce and Mac discuss what life is like here during Christmas – illuminations, Coca Cola and the biggest Christmas tradition of them all – KFC. Wrap up warm, make yourself a Hot Chocolate or grab some Amazake and prepare to be jolly with Tokyo ON – after all, ’tis the season for it!

Maction Planet runs Tokyo Music Tours, which we brand “Maction Planet Radio Tours”, introducing people to the varied and diverse range of music in The World’s Greatest Metropolis. Tokyo’s music scene can be difficult to crack for visitors, 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.

Like everything at Maction Planet, your Tokyo Music Tour can be fully-customised around the rest of your time touring The World’s Greatest Metropolis. Click here for one example – Cherry Blossom viewing followed by an amazing gig from Tokyo Discotheque Orchestra.
