Karaoke no Tetsujin
If you want to have fun in Japan, one great way to do so is to visit the Karaoke no Tetsujin. The aim of the company ? which was established in the late 1990s ? is to spread Karaoke around the country. The Kanto area of Tokyo currently contains over 60 karaoke boxes, with a total range of over half a million songs. The vast majority (around 450,000) are in the Japanese language, but with over 30,000 English or foreign language songs there are plenty to select.
