Tokyo Decadance

The other day, more specifically Saturday (which else? ;) ), I went to what might have been the strangest club in the world. Ok, that might not be true, but it was definitely the strangest I — or any of my friends, who went with me, for that matter — have been to. The party was called “Tokyo Decadance” and was held in club Warehouse not too far from Roppongi (麻布十番). Since most of the people here at YSEP were doing a homestay, I went with some Scottish lads instead. :) Supposedly the Japanese would dress up really crazy for this party and my Scottish friends told me they had gotten costumes, but I didn’t believe them. I didn’t have a costume and had no clue on where to get one, so I just assumed they didn’t either.

How wrong was I… When I met up with them in Roppongi this was just a bit of what I saw:

Scots Can Fly

A Scotsman (Ross) in his Kilt (of course) and with wings! Haha. Behind him you can arguably distinguish another one (Jamie), this time with a dress and a Mohawk. I later heard that he was meaning to give that dress to his sister for her birthday later. Funny! :)

After a fair bit of convincing that I knew where the club was (nobody else did), I finally led the — partly drunk — party to their beloved Warehouse. We were there greeted in the door by a man dressed up as a girl with a BIG yellow plastic hairdo (think Marge in the Simpsons, but yellow). After paying 4,000 Yen ( ~SEK 220. A bit steep, but it was so worth it), we got in and the party could start. Ross and Jamie got up on the podium in the middle of the dance floor instantly.


Martin is looking for his next victim. Which poor girl is it going to be this time. ;)

Pretty soon after getting in they started a theatre play. It was a very strange play and I could never understand the story of it. It went on for what seemed like an eternity.


This wasn’t the only show they were going to put on throughout the night — there would be many more — which was a very good thing I suppose, since dancing to electronic music is only so much fun.

When the play had finished the go-go dancers hit the stage. Their outfits didn’t disappoint anyone, I believe. So the dancing begun…


Talking about outfits, take a good look at this guy (at least I think it was a guy). He looked like a cross between a crayfish, a fly and a mosquito. He had plateau shoes that were about 70 cm high (mind you he is squatting in the photo below).


After some dancing and jaw-dropping from looking at people’s costumes, it was time for the next show. This time a group of four (or was it five) guys in jumpsuits entered the stage and started doing strange things. This guy is trying to light up his cigarette.


And the crowd loved it.


They continue by doing more strange things, one guy put a live scorpion in his mouth, another guy got fireworks shot into his mouth…


These guys would come back once more a little bit later during the night, where they among other things sat their farts on fire, and drank milk through their noses and squirted it out their eyes… haha.

Next up, after some more dancing of course, was a band. They played some strange kind of music that I cannot really label. Anyway, as the whole theme of the night seemed to be “strange”, they fitted right in. :)


I also had the luck to meet a really nice girl in the club. I didn’t get her number though. Pity! Here’s a photo of the two of us:


Isn’t that just the cutest thing you’ve ever seen..? Or at least top ten, come on!!! ;)

To finish the evening off more female dancers entered the stage. This time it was a bit naughtier. No complaints here. :D I chose to only include a quite harmless photo here, while still giving some sense of what was going on…


It was then followed by more leather, whips, and paddles, chains and bondage… :)

The adventure didn’t stop there, however. Going around at 5-6 a.m. with a drunk, bare chested Scotsman in a kilt — in under 10°C, while looking for food in Shibuya — was an adventure on its own, but that’s another story…

    Du menar kritstrecksrandigt med tvÃ¥ enkla frÃ¥gor…
    “How much”?
    “When can we ship”?
