If you follow him on Instagram you’ll likely already know that photographer Dan Wilton is currently in Tokyo, working on a number of different photographic projects but also just having a really wonderful and incredibly photogenic time. It’s the “good time” element that his most recent series Call Us If You Wanna Have a Real Party which he shot for Vice focuses on. “Someone told me that Halloween isn’t big in Japan,” Dan explains. “I got a feeling they might be wrong when I arrived and there was Halloween bunting up in my hotel, three weeks before the day. Sure enough, Tokyo lost the plot on Friday night.”

Shot in Roppongi and the backstreets of Shibuya and Shinjuku, the series feels something like a love letter to the freaks of Japan’s party scene. And given his track record (shooting bands The Bots and TEED on tour and generally having a fantastic time) we wouldn’t expect anything less.
