Tokyo’s little Jamaica

posted on September 7th, 2008 by in Article


We know that some Japanese people really embrace reggae and dancehall culture. And we also know that Asians embracing something means them studying all details about the subject. Their passion for Jamaica therefore doesn´t stop with just filling football stadiums with soundsystem shows and having schools to learn how to properly Dutty Wine and do the “Nuh Linga“, they also have restaurants back home serving “traditional” Jamaican food.

One of these establishments is called “Allawi” and is located near Ebisu station in Tokyo. Find a funny review of the place over at the Japan Times.
