Tokyo ON #035: Who Run the World

In this episode of Tokyo ON, Maction Planet Radio’s flagship show, Resident DJ Royce Leong delivers on his promise to dedicate an entire show to female rappers in Japan, featuring the likes of 鈴木真海子, COMA-CHI, Awich and more.

In addition to delving into the background of these artists, Royce also talks about business succession in Japan, traditional souvenir sweets and the greatest female poet in Japanese history.

Put your hands up for these lovely ladies and go bananas with 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.

Some examples include:
