Fuerza Bruta has performed in 60 cities across 30 countries, and has dazzled over 5 million people from all over the world. The major Japanese entertainment company teamed up with Fuerza Bruta creator, Diqui James to produce an all-new show, “WA!,” which draws inspiration from Japan for both the title and content.

Let yourself be enchanted by the dancers as they run across walls, sing, dance, shout, and even swim inside a gigantic suspended pool. Using a specially outfitted stage to accommodate a show that incorporates the simultaneous use of sound, light, wind, water, and film, “WA!” promises surreal realism right before your very eyes.

Jazz Bird ~Jazz and Drinks and More on Omotesando Tonight-
You can enjoy the triple combination of food, drinks, and live jazz in a complex space consisting of a bar counter on the 1st floor and a piano table on a semi-basement floor. The food, cooked on the premises, has an ample range and has earned a good reputation. The owner and proprietress Miyo Suzuki says “the concept isn’t to be a pure jazz house, but rather, a place where live music is background while you enjoy your meal and alcohol. That’s why good jazz from a small band is best”. Miyo started in a student band as a student at Waseda University, and turned pro later. She was in demand at major hotels, restaurants, and clubs around the capital. She has even played in Los Angeles and San Francisco. If you're in luck, you can hear her play piano a few times a month. Open 6:30PM-2AM, performance from 7:30PM-11PM (Closed Sun & Holidays).
