    One of the great heroes of mine surely is Godzilla. The big fellow from the seaside, who was created through atomic pollution by American evildoers in Japan. Hence Japan was bombed by A-bombs the whole multitude of nuclear pollution was a very relevant dramatic element. The character was created in 1950s and was instantly a major success in the Japanese Cinema. This is grand B-Movie-History. Up to date there have been 28 movies made and the next big thing lingers around the corner. Rumors say, that there will be another epic Japanese G-Film soon.

  • Karaoke-Box in Roppongi

    Karaoke-Box in Roppongi

    In my point of view Karaoke is such an important part of Japanese Popculture as Manga and Anime. Because the ambitious salary men of the island are working 24/7 they surely try to enjoy their free time at the max. Invented in the 70's the idea of making yourself a clown by singing your favourite songs in front of a large crowd. In Japan it is quite common to book entire karaoke boxes for some hours. Fixed by this idea we made this entertainment our program for new years eve. First we looked around Shinjuku, but nope. We found our spot in Roppongi, which is the new nightlife quarter of Tokyo. There are entire Karaoke-Buildings, that have boxes on several floors, which are decorated in movie- and music-themes. The rent of the box is paid per the amount of people singing. So this is reasonable, but cheap it isn’t. You also have to buy drinks, maybe you right away take the flatrate. In the box we needed 10 minutes to figure out the system to choose songs and we were anxious to get the action on like in “lost in translation”. Finally we figured out that there is a display which takes the orders and sends them to the prompter via Bluetooth. There is also a telephone-book-size instruction from which you can also choose songs.
