About the Show


Citypop is cool and all, but what about the music beyond the glitzy skyline? Backstreet’s back and this time, they’re in Tokyo. Join Karina in a musical tour through the Japanese music scene in this hour-long weekly broadcast. Featuring an eclectic mix of indie, enka, and everything in between, the songs are connected by mood, type, cultural significance, or the musical power of Yonezu Kenshi. Also featuring cultural tidbits, antecdotes, and a strong helping of kansai-ben. No Japanese knowledge required!
