Blue Note Tokyo

Jazz in Harajuku & Aoyama

This is the place to take in the likes of Maceo Parker, Herbie Hancock and Doctor John. Just like its sister acts in New York and Milan, the digs here are classily decorated with dark wood and deep velvet. Tickets typically run ¥6000 to ¥9800, plus a drink or food order.

Students can get in for 50% off with ID, but you have to reserve over the phone (or try your luck at the door).
