Tokyo Decadance: White and Yellow - Japanese Earthquake/Tsunami Relief Aid



Tokyo Decadance that wild melting pot of subcultures hosted its monthly event this March. Normally the March event is to celebrate White Day March 14th which is the opposite of Valentines. On Valentines, girls give boys presents and on White Day the boys return the favor.


This year however the day before the originally schedule event there was a massive earthquake 80 kilometers off the northeast coast of Japan which caused destructive tsunamis which wiped out whole towns and caused enormous destruction and loss of life along the northeast coast of the Tohoku region.


Tokyo Decadance was postponed for two weeks and renamed White and Yellow. White for the original White Day and Yellow for support of Japan. Yellow is a positive color in Japan. A percent of the party's profit was donated to the Red Cross.


There wasn't as many people out as usual events but there was still a good showing. Kaya was there singing a duet. We had great music played by DJs like Rina Nekko, we had a seppuku (ritual suicide) simulation with lightsaber, a lightsaber dual between an angel and a gaijin samurai, and as always cute sexy girls.

  1. Hey Roving Ronin - I stumbled on your blog by accident. Your personal description says the following ... "I’ve run with the bulls of Pamplona, hiked the Inca Trail, got mugged in Mexico City, floated down the Nile in an old boat, climbed the Great Pyramid of Egypt, got ripped at Oktoberfest, and rode the notorious Tokyo Yamanote Halloween Party Train. "

    If all that is true ... may I respectfully suggest that you acquire some real martial arts skills while in Japan?! Otherwise some of these antics might just put you in the emergency room sooner or later. Look into the history of real ronin - maybe there's a lesson there.

    Also - if you want to do an interesting story about Japan .... look up the "bosozoku". The rebellious motorcycle riders. Should be right up your alley :-)
