International Jazz Day
International Jazz Day celebrates the historical, cultural, and educational contribution of this popular genre of music. The day aims to spread international awareness about this unique musical style; and to promote the cultural, and social values that Jazz stands for.
Japan has long had a love affair with jazz. From the first jazz bands arriving on ocean liners in the port cities of Kobe and Yokohama in the 1920s to the current 100-plus nightly live jazz venues in the Tokyo area, Japan arguably has embraced jazz more fervently than any other country outside its birthplace, America.
