ParaPara Dancing at SEF Maharaja in Tokyo
If you have never heard of Super Euro Flash in the heart of Tokyo than welcome to a whole new scene called ParaPara which is synchronized line dancing but with your arms.
ParaPara cannot be explained to the average person. Its an unqiue state of mind that you can only experience when actually participating in one of the few exclusive parties.
My friend Heather and I had a mouth-watering dinner at Miyabitei Izo prior to the event.
We ordered Unagi on rice which comes in a hotpot + portable timer and cooks in front of your eyes as side dishes we ordered salmon sashimi and my new favorite dish: Eihire (dried stingray).
We dressed up in Yukata which is a Japanese garment, a casual summer kimono usually made of cotton or synthetic fabric, and unlined. Yukata are worn by both men and women. Like other forms of traditional Japanese clothing, yukata are made with straight seams and wide sleeves.
I really like the new routine they had at SEF; Be Foolish (eurobeat mix) by ぽこた, click to watch the original video by Pokota which is a love story of a Japanese boy that becomes a host to impress a girl.
They had an ice machine at SEF to make shaved ice with syrup which is a popular Summer festival delight in Japan.
The Eurobeat & Hyper Techno songs in the video are:
- La Cima - Poker Face
- The Loco - Hombre
- Valery Scott - Now and Forever
- Kate Perry - E.T. (Hyper Master Remix)
- 2 Brother on the 4th Floor - Fly (through the starry night)
