Welcome at ‘Dokumen – Tokioter Stadtkapelle’, the only authentic and original German Oktoberfestband permanently based in Japan!

Never heard about Dokumen so far? Here’s a bit of our history…

…there was a time in late summer 2014, during one of the many Oktoberfests in Tokyo, that our guitarist was listening to the familar sounds of a band imported from Germany, wondering why there is no Oktoberfest band settled in Japan. Hence, an idea was born – and shortly after, enough friends were gathered to start playing real German sounds. Since then, we are meeting regularly to improve your play and build up a set list to play at various Oktoberfests in Japan.
Finally, in the beginning of 2015, Dokumen was officially named by the five starting members Shunsuke, Sabrina, Sadjad, Manuel and Heike.

What is so special about Dokumen? First of all, we are permanently based in Japan/Tokyo. Furthermore…

…since most of our members are born and raised in South Germany, we are experienced representatives of German Oktoberfest culture and have profound knowledge on the latest trends in Oktoberfest music. Living in Japan for several years, however, we are also well aware of the specialties in Japanese culture and interest towards Germany. This allows us to select the most fun and exciting songs for the Japanese audience to become a part of our set list.

What are you waiting for?

Check out our demo songs, come to listen to us at one of our stages, or book us for your next German event! We are looking forward to play for you soon and enjoy German culture with you!
