Performing in Japan: The KMC Guide to the World's Largest Music Market
Musicians who are interested in performing in Japan may encounter many challenges trying to set up shows due to differences in language and culture. This book provides vital information about the Japanese music scene and how musicians from overseas can navigate it successfully. Compiled specifically for working musicians, all of the advice, hints, and testimonials in this book are either from veteran musicians and members of the industry living in Japan or from musicians who have performed there as part of the Kansai Music Conference. It also includes useful Japanese phrases that can go a long way to making the difference between having a “good” tour and having a “productive” tour. Many people think that Japan is a place where foreign musicians can “make it big” like they did in the late 20th century, but those days are gone. This book is here to explain why things have changed and how to adjust your strategy to establish a foothold and make the most of your experience in Japan.
