Bluegrass Clubs, Japan

The twang of a Dobro or rhythmic picking on a banjo may be the last sounds a traveler expects to hear in Asia. Welcome to the wonderful world of Japanese bluegrass, which astounds roots-music lovers with its dedication to authenticity. To journey to Appalachia via Tokyo, check out one of the regular bluegrass nights at Moon Stomp (Koenji Kita 2-22-6, 81/(0) 3-3310-6996, bighitcompany.com/moonstomp), a 20-seat club in the low-rise Koenji neighborhood; and Rocky Top (Ginza 7-8-19, Chuo-ku, 81/(0) 3-3571-1955, liverocky.com), in the posh Ginza district.
