This Week(End): Tokyo Area Events For March 16-17

Remembering the Tohoku Earthquake

An Evening of Shomyo Jazz

Jazz quintet Super Red Band will be joining the Buddhist priests of Takahata Fudo-son and other nearby temples to hold a charity concert benefiting areas impacted by the 2011 Tohoku earthquake. The concert’s setlist will feature a fusion of modern jazz and shomyo, a millennium old style of lyrical chanting used in Buddhist prayers for the living and departed. The theme of the unique combination is finding peace in the past and fun in the future. A bit far from central Tokyo but definitely worth the visit!
