The Japanese music scene is incredibly dynamic, with something to offer everyone. We at Kaala primarily focus on the more metal side of things, but that’s not to say we aren’t keeping an eye on other genres! In this case, we’ve got an incredible opportunity for those of you who lean more towards the hardcore end of things and are super excited to be offering it!

For at least 10 years now, Bloodaxe Festival has been bringing together some of the best acts in Hardcore both from Japan and elsewhere, and serves as a great platform to get engaged with the vicious legions of slamdancers and stagedivers! It’s a 1-day festival at Kawasaki’s storied Club Citta, which is right between Tokyo and Yokohama.

This is an excellent opportunity to explore Tokyo and the surrounding area during the start of our favorite season in Japan: 秋 (aki, or Autumn)! While we can’t guarantee that the 以呂波椛 (irohamomiji, or Red Emperor Maple) leaves will be in 紅葉 (kōyō, or the period when leaves change color), but the weather will be wonderful and you might even get the chance to hear the last few (semi, or cicadas) buzzing away!

Let's slam!

This package is largely centered around the Bloodaxe Festival, there’s so much more we can help you to do. Here’s a run down of what you’ll get with the package, and what you can add on to it!

What is included:

  • A devoted guide fluent in Japanese and with over a decade of experience in Japan’s underground scene!

  • Airfare and hotel costs are included! We take care of all the logistics so you can relax and enjoy the show!

    • 1 person per hotel room unless otherwise notified

    • Note: Japanese hotels are priced by the person, not by room. So even if you squeeze 15 people into 1 room, you’ll still be paying for 15 people at the going rate.

  • Pre-paid tickets for Bloodaxe Festival!

  • Pre-paid transit cards that, in theory, you could use to travel the entire country!

  • Record shopping around Tokyo!

  • A party at Yokohama’s heralded Thrash Zone brewpub!
