Moving to the big city is often an essential step for artists to make it in the entertainment industry, and Japan's capital Tokyo is the destination where many dream of making their mark. It's certainly no wonder that the city has inspired a seemingly endless number of songs.

This month, our team has put together a playlist compiling tracks with "Tokyo" in the title. You'll find a wide variety of views on the city, including tracks singing its praises and some that look at the darker side of life in such a busy, competitive environment. The tracks span a wide variety of genres, ranging from upbeat dance and rock to more laidback hip-hop and even traditional folk and enka tunes.

Give the playlist a spin below:


Have you spent time in Tokyo? Do any of these tracks reflect your impressions of the city? Are there any songs you would add? Let us know with a comment on social media.

If you're enjoying the song selections, feel free to follow JaME on Spotify to stay tuned for more playlists or to check out some of the other themes we've tackled further down the page.

As an added bonus, some of our team members have shared photos from their trips to Tokyo to help provide another set of perspectives on the city. Check out their shots in the gallery below.
