There’s A Nightclub Inside A Japanese Metro Station
Pretty convenient if you need to catch the train home.
While Japan is the place to go if you’re looking to get a little outside your comfort zone, we may have found the coolest place to have a dance – underground in the metro, of course.
Club Metro, a dingy basement club in the artsy university district of Kyoto, can be found in a sectioned-off tunnel inside the still-functioning Metro station there – which is pretty damn convenient for when you need to catch the last train home.
The club hosts everything from avant garde parties to live music and raging club nights with guests like DJ Harvey; the night inthemix visited it was the closing party of an art exhibition, featuring tunes by a didgeridoo-playing psytrance drummer, a glitch DJ, and a noise experimentalist who made menacing whale song sounds using a CDJ and a guitar pedal.
