Live From Tokyo takes you back to Japan in the late 2000s through the back streets in Shinjuku, the intersections in Shibuya, the alleys in Koenji, and all over Tokyo, as it spotlights the innovative musicians that create the multi-faceted underground music scene.

Originally released in 2010, this reflective documentary conjures a portal into the ever-evolving indie music culture in Tokyo, represented by bands/artists such as: Tokumaru Shugo, Nisenenmondai, Tenniscoats & Secai, DMBQ, Suishou no Fune, and more.
