Description: 1962 JAPAN vintage magazine article ~ Dazzle After Dark

~ Japan's Dazzle After Dark - Bygone customs, modern dash and brass - Japan, always a great place for night life, now is jumping as never before. In fact it is the No. 1 after-dark amusement park of all Asia. Thanks to a booming economy and growing expense-account crowd, Tokyo has more nightclubs than anywhere on earth and even hinterlands are aglow with pleasure palaces. They compete with traditional entertainment, giving the Nipponese night owl a bewildering variety to pick from, and many places outdo Las Vegas for Western-style brass and splash. The fun seeker at left has chosen a Tokyo club called the Uruwashi where the chief draws are tango music and beautifully coifed hostesses who hover around like handmaidens. Each of Tokyo's four major entertainment areas has hundreds of bars, nightclubs, dance halls, sake shops and pinball parlors. Floor shows have everything from girls who slither in costly silks to girls who bump and grind in almost nothing at all. These 12 color pages capture the breathtaking pace of Japan after dark -- a dizzy but beguiling merry-go-round that whirls with charm, excitement and blinding glitter. . . . Photographed for LIFE by Eliot Elisofon . . . Sake, Sing-Along And Girls In Country Kimonos . . . A new-fangled nightclub with an old-fashioned flavor, Tokyo's Miyoshi Folk Song Sake Parlor attracts a middle-aged clientele which goes for music, dance and sing-alongs. Outside (left) a huge, oilpaper lantern hangs over the entrance. It is eight feet in diameter. Inside (above), the patrons swig beer and munch raw fish while they watch authentic folk dancing. The dancers are waitresses in country-style cotton kimonos and traditional, elaborate hairdos. The music is provided by two samisen players and a drummer (left). Often the customers join in the nostalgic songfest. Here the waitresses are doing the Hanagasa Ondo, which comes from northern Japan and means "flower hat dance." . . . Gaudy Splendor, Mainly For The Males . . . In Japan's Biggest Club, A Lot Of Show For The Yen . . . The Blare Of Rock 'N' Roll, A Batch Of Tiny Hostesses . . . Flashy Blend Of East And West ~
