Dancing to the Beats

The Bon Dance segment promises a diverse playlist featuring hits such as “EZ DO DANCE”, “Natsuiro no Nancy”, Bon Jovi’s “Livin’ on a Prayer”, and Taylor Swift’s “Shake It Off”. Whether you’re a dancing enthusiast or just looking for some fun, there’s something for everyone.

A Quick Note On The Japan Rail Pass Price Hike
The price of the wonderful Japan Rail Pass is going up a massive 62% in October but there’s still time to lock in the old rates if you’re quick. Klook still offers the old prices so if you buy before September 30th you can travel with the old prices until December 28th, 2023.


Live Stage Acts
