Inkyo BMX Jam - Tokyo

Shibuya and Shinjuku by night

26 Jun 2020

Filmed and edited by Peter Keller

Post-lockdown fun in Tokyo, Japan with a host of locals. Here's some info from filmer Peter Keller:

"The BMX core scene revolves around two well known areas in Tokyo: Shibuya and Shinjuku. While Shibuya is more known for shopping, party and showing off the latest trends in nearby Harajuku, Shinjuku has a way more filthy, dangerous and adventurous appeal. Known for its notorious party areas and the Yakuza undermined red light district Kabukichō. These two districts have always been the pinnacle of the Tokyo BMX scene for more than 20 years. If there are foreigners coming to town to ride BMX or skateboard, most likely they start in Shibuya. There are many good riders out there in the streets of Tokyo, some you've never heard of, but who you will most likely cross paths with if you ride BMX or skate around Shibuya and Shinjuku at night. Riding BMX street or skateboard in Tokyo means you are mainly riding at night. There’s an almost zero tolerance policy in this town during daytime. Also according to the huge amount of people moving around certain areas during office and business hours. It feels like reclaiming the city at night for your own purpose after everybody else just got channeled through this city environment as planned by some urban city architects. It’s really amazing how suddenly around 9pm and later on the streets get filled by BMX riders and skaters and you see groups of them buzzing around Shibuya all night, finally taking on all the concrete and steel environment and making it their creative playground at night time. In the morning the salaried humans will take over again with their very pre-planned ways of moving around in this city. The INKYO JAM was initiated by Masa from 150S TOWN to be a very inclusive jam format for any skill level and age. Especially to motivate beginners to try new things and get comfortable among more established riders. Everyone is a winner at INKYO JAM. It’s a really about the foundation of BMX, having a great time together and pushing each other to new limits. And hereby it doesn’t matter if you learn your first grind or barspin in and out everything. Everybody gets respect and prizes from the jam’s sponsors. Another intention of tshe jam’s maker is to help Japanese brands to get some more attention. Brands like ALIVEindustry, YELLbrand, RODIconnect and 150S TOWN are rider owned and come really from the core of the scene. The jam is also about connecting cultures and getting riders from Japan and the Tokyo scene out there in the world."
