Live from Tokyo takes the viewer through the back streets in Shinjuku, the intersections in Shibuya, the alleys in Koenji, and all over Tokyo, as it highlights the innovative musicians that create the multifaceted underground music scene.

Welcome to a world where ideas and genres are pushed to their extremes, with the general sentiment that there is new music waiting to be created.

The documentary looks at Tokyo's music culture as a reflection of Japanese society and in relation to international music culture. Special guest HIromu Boschee Nagahara, assistant professor of history at MIT, will share from his research into the history of media, popular culture, and censorship in modern Japan to give texture and context to the current music scene.
