Blue Note Tokyo is a popular jazz club located in Minato, Tokyo, Japan. Established in 1988, the club has gained a reputation as one of the best venues for live jazz music in the city. With a seating capacity of over 300, the club attracts both local and international jazz musicians and enthusiasts.

The history of Blue Note Tokyo dates back to the late 1980s when jazz music was gaining popularity in Japan. At the time, there were very few venues for live jazz performances in Tokyo, and the founders of Tokyo Blue Note saw an opportunity to fill this gap in the market. They opened the club in 1988, and it quickly became a popular destination for jazz lovers in Tokyo.

Over the years, Blue Note Tokyo has hosted some of the biggest names in jazz music, including Dizzy Gillespie, Herbie Hancock, Chick Corea, and McCoy Tyner. The club has also been a launching pad for up-and-coming jazz musicians from Japan and around the world.

The club’s success has been attributed to its commitment to providing a high-quality jazz experience for its patrons. The club’s sound system and lighting are state-of-the-art, and the atmosphere is designed to create an intimate and comfortable setting for the audience.

In addition to live music performances, Blue Note Tokyo also hosts jazz workshops and masterclasses. These events provide an opportunity for aspiring jazz musicians to learn from some of the best in the industry and improve their skills.

In recent years, Blue Note Tokyo has expanded its operations to include a record label and an online store. The record label, Blue Note Japan, releases albums by both established and emerging jazz musicians, while the online store sells jazz CDs, vinyl records, and merchandise.
