Save Japan’s Nightclubs with These Crowdfunding Campaigns

The combination of the coronavirus and the State of Emergency has not only devastated the tourist industry but has wrecked the nightclub scene.

In April, Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and Japanese government officials “strongly requested” for residents to refrain from visiting hostess bars, izakayas, pachinko parlors, and nightclubs.

Nightclubs were already struggling with a severe decrease in foreign customers due to travel limitations. Still, nightclub owners carried on with the parties despite the increase in cases around Tokyo and Osaka.

Now after several weeks of temporary closing, many of Japan’s popular nightclubs are struggling to pay staff, rent, and utilities. And in an unexpected move, a vast majority of nightclubs, particularly in Osaka, are crowdfunding to stay open.

Many of these nightclubs are asking for up to 5 million yen ( 46,000 USD), which we presume would only cover rent and full-timer salaries for 2-3 months. Each nightclub is offering various support options ranging from 3,000 Yen to 100,000 Yen packages, including free entrance, merch, or VIP tables and bottles as rewards.

In our opinion, crowdfunding a nightclub is a precarious investment as there is no guarantee the nightclub can reopen. However, for many of us music lovers, and fans of Tokyo’s nightlife, it would be a serious downer to see popular techno nightclubs such as VENT close.

We have put together all of Japan’s nightclubs that are asking for financial help. Click the links below to support the venue.
