My First ParaPara Event In Tokyo: B-1 Dynamite!! At Club Code In Shinjuku

on Apr. 18, 2007 by

Eurobeat and Hyper Techno ParaPara party in the heart of Shinjuku, at this event everyone dances synchronized with primarily their arms. Most unique experience so far in Tokyo!

I have been obsessed with Eurobeat the last few years and was dying to attend an actual Eurobeat party.

Tokyo is pretty much the only place where they place Eurobeat in nightclubs. After some research online I found a place in Kabukicho that had a Wednesday night event for Eurobeat lovers. The party was only from 7pm till 12pm since it was a weekday.

The music was already blasting the minute I walked in. Everybody was participating in some strange dance which was primarily dominated by hand movements. The dance changed every song and everybody seemed to be able to keep up and stay in sync. I was impressed and wanted to experience more of this ParaPara fever.

There was another room next to the Eurobeat room where they were playing Hyper Techno.

This music was even more intense and so were the hand motions. I made friends with many people at the event some of them were actually pretty famous in the scene, they told me their names were; Ryuichi, Kyohei and Shota. I couldn't wait to come back one day and hangout again.

B-1 Dynamite was held at Club Complex CODE in Kabukicho, Tokyo Japan. Just consider an entire club full of people participating in the same dance, it is truly intense!
