Suginami Interviews & Documentary
While the situation still doesn’t allow for visits to Suginami Ward in Tokyo or Japan in general for that matter, we have recently added a wealth of great info in video format that gives you a chance to learn more about the culture and history of this area. Suginami has the highest concentration of animation production studios in all of Japan, and we talked some key members of MAPPA and Contrail Studios in Asagaya. If you are interested in animation, especially in the idea of it as a career, please check out Part 1 and Part 2 of that talk. Additionally, Koenji in Suginami has a rich music history and culture, particularly that of punk rock, so if you are interested in music in Japan please check out Part 1 of that short documentary here.
