Beyond anime, otaku and J-pop…

Tokyo Flow looks beneath the surface of ‘Japanese Cool’ through the reporting, photography and event production work of Dan Grunebaum. I’m a Tokyo-based web, television and print journalist with 20 years’ experience covering Japanese arts and entertainment for media including the New York Times, CNN Travel and Discovery Insight’s Tokyo SmartGuide. I oversee arts coverage for Tokyo weekly Metropolis and as an extension, produce the event Saiko Tokyo Live Music Showcase. I also edit news and market reports for NHK World, the English channel of Japan’s public broadcaster, and was previously a correspondent for United Press International.
