‘House Dance Crossing……..Kawasaki Tokyo 2018’

I have for many years been lucky enough to travel in Japan and experienced much of its rich and deep culture
In early 2018 I was invited to take pictures at an event in Kawasaki Tokyo by my friend Kumiko Yajima the A&R for House Dancer Hiro who organised it all.
I have a personal interest in dance music and dancing as I started to follow Northern Soul music, as many of us did from Hull in the late 1970’s. It has always been a passion to this day.
What was wonderful about this event in Tokyo was the obvious age range and the feeling it was a family day out.
Alcohol was sold but children as young as six or seven were wandering within the event freely without any fear……dance music in Japan doesn’t come with usual negative trappings of drugs and over indulgence unsuitable for youngsters to witness……..it really was just a good time had by all……….and wow they can dance.

Special thanks to:
Sachiko Laffey and Kumiko Yajima,
without whom there would be no photographs of this.
