Japan Underground: One Year Anniversary

We can’t believe it’s been over a year since the very first Japan Underground event. Since then we’ve gone on to meet so many fantastic people, with your help raised £10,000 for Japanese charities, toured England, recieved support from the likes of Suga Shikao and Rie fu, opened for Shonen Knife and Doping Panda, worked with everyone from J-pop stars (Yuki Koyanagi, Ayako Nakanomori, Mari Natsuki) to upcoming indie stars (HITT, HONDALADY, Tokyo Pinsalocks, iMMa) and just had an all round amazing time. Not to mention loads of press coverage, including being reccomended by Time Out London as an alternative night out, got a page in The Independent and featured on Kerrang! and Absolute Radio. We have some massive plans for the year ahead, and our revamped website – now including UK exclusive news and features – is just a small part of them. Thank you to you all, and keep spreading the word.

Much love,
Tom

About Tom Smith
Some say he's fuelled on nothing but energy drinks, and that when he visits Japan, he spends the whole time engaging the ground in an all too familiar way. But what we do know is that his words on the country's entertainment and culture find their way into NEO Magazine on a monthly basis, while everything else finds its way here. Be it quirky news item from the Land of the Rising Sun, or a story so gruesome it'd be rude not to pass it on, you'll find it here along with his general posts about life, work and most importantly play. And yes, he has had articles printed in the likes of MCV, GamesMaster, 360 Gamer and more, thanks for noticing.
