Fueiho: Japan’s Ban on Public Dancing
Japan has a series of laws designed to curb vice behaviors – including one such law known as Fueiho, which severely restricts dancing in social spaces. With the enforcement of Fueiho, first dance events were being shut down in Osaka, then Tokyo, where club owners were also arrested, and now the very existence of dance music culture in Japan is being threatened. Japan’s Cabinet recently agreed to address the application of the notorious law, but many club owners are still operating in a technically grey legal zone. THUMP’s Andrea Feczko hit the streets of Shibuya to dig in with music journalist Mike Sunda and club promoter DJ Vivid to better understand how Japan’s dance music culture is evolving.
