Japan’s biggest jazz festival always features a stellar lineup of artists. The main stage in NHK Hall hosts the headliners on September 1 and 2, which this year include Herbie Hancock and Sadao Watanabe Orchestra. But for something a bit special, you’re better off exploring the free gigs at the outdoor stage along Yoyogi Park’s Keyaki Namiki street (from August 31).
Japanese act to watch: With a fast-growing fan base all around the world, Cornelius is always best experienced live, especially at a hometown show like this where his synchronised sound, video and lighting effects packed performance will be met with rapture.
