If we think of a country very different and very distant from ours, Japan undoubtedly fulfills those characteristics. That country fell in love at first sight with our tango . That's already known history, but how did tango get there?
It was all the work of one man: Baron Tsunayoshi Tsunami Megata, son of a Japanese diplomat and grandson of samurai Kaishu Katsu, the first noble warrior to travel to the United States. In 1920, to undergo a surgical operation, Megata went to Paris , where he later resided for 6 years. During his stay in that city, he learned to dance tango in the cabaret El Garrón , in which Manuel Pizarro 's orchestra performed.
Upon his return to Japan , Baron Megata set up a free dance academy in Tokyo, where he taught how to dance our music to the Japanese aristocracy. He also published the book Un módos para ballar el tango argentino.
From then on, tango began to spread in the Japanese country, which started a romance that continues to this day.
