Thanks to all of you tangueros and tangueras who were kind enough to provide contacts to instructors and milongas in Tokyo. If any of my other fellow dancers have suggestions on milongas or salsa clubs – I’ll happily take them as I don’t leave until Thursday.
In the meantime, I am going to treat myself to an all-Tokyo film fest this weekend, which will include:
Lost in Translation – As I will soon be Lost in Tokyo.
Blade Runner (The Director’s cut) – I’m told Ridley Scott’s futuristic film noir evokes the sights and sounds of present day Tokyo and the Shinjuku area where I will be staying.
Shall We Dance? The original Japanese version of this film really hits home for many of us. If it says anything about human nature, it’s that it’s never too late to rediscover who you are – especially if you happen to find yourself in Tokyo.
