Ikebukuro Street Jazz – Revisited

Posted in Places by tokyobling on December 11, 2012

Two and a half years ago I posted about one of the great joys of Tokyo, the live jazz street bands that play for free outside some of the major stations, like this band. A couple of weeks ago I happened to see them again in the very same spot, some new members, but the fantastic drummer was still there! You can see a short 45 second clip of him in this video. Before I got my camera ready another photographer (blogger perhaps?) started shooting in front of me. It’s always fun to see other photographers at work!

    Ah! I just wanted to ask – isn’t it Ikebukuro?
    Then I saw your tags…

    I love all those street bands. Also Shinjuku has many 🙂

      Yes, Shinjuku, Ikebukuro, and sometimes Shibuya, Kawasaki and even Fujisawa! (^-^)

    Nice! All we have here is a man with a flute and also one with an accordion 🙂 They can be seen pretty much everyday around the corners somewhere in the city. Even today with the town being all white and cold with the snow, they were there playing!
