You Make Shibuya

Maki Nomiya and Hideki Kaji are turning into ambassadors for Shibuya — you’ll remember that they’re doing a weekly Shibuya-kei radio show together these days — and on this official Shibuya-ku website, promoting a “You Make Shibuya” campaign, you can listen to a song they made together. Below (photo by Patrick Benny), you can see them on the cover of the Shibuya-ku News free paper (love that Shibuya-ku News logo).

As I’ve been deep diving back into the world of Shibuya-kei — the soundtrack to my world during my first few years of living in Tokyo — I was ecstatic to find out (via Patrick) that earlier this year, Maki Nomiya and Hideki Kaji started doing a weekly radio show called Shibuya no Radio no Shibuya-kei (it airs on a new radio station called Shibuya no Radio). You can listen to the first episode online here, and you’ll find more episodes here.
