Peruvian Band Busking In Japan


A Peruvian combo dressed in ponchos and displaying some nifty footwork are a fixture at Kanayama Station in Nagoya on weekends. This performance was cut short by the arrival of the Japanese police with one young clip-board toting officer, politely tapping his feet to the beat and waiting for a break in the music before moving in to have a quiet word.

We left at this stage but when we returned about 5 hours later the guys were still going strong. I will try to find out exactly what the law is regarding buskers in Japan. If you know, please leave a comment below.

  1. I was on holidays in Japan over the December and early January period.I saw these guys somewhere else,I think it was in Osaka,nice sound and drew a good crowd.

  2. I too have seen them in Tokyo performing outside the Shinagawa, Kaihim-Makuhari and Kawasaki stations.. Peppy music indeed..

  3. I'm planning to do some busking in Kyoto Japan, it'd be a great help if anybody knows the laws and rules about buskers and street entertainers in Japan.
    Best regards.
