Takapartch, Tokyo

Takapartch is a musician, composer and comedian with a long and diverse history. It was in 1990 that he started his street performance of the “Human Juke Box”. Keep an eye out for an unusual box in Motomachi Park. Insert a coin and make your choice from the huge list of possible songs including soundtracks, folk songs, classical pieces, jazz and even his self-composed numbers. Takapartch will then appear and begin the show. Each time is different, but whether you see the trumpet, the tambourine or other instruments, be sure to expect some humour.
