The Tokyo summer heat is almost unbearable. That’s why it’s no surprise that Japan takes full advantage of sweltering summers by flocking to beaches, pools, and basically anywhere there’s water. Japanese youngsters have recently been attending Night Pool events, which are pretty self-explanatory – they’re pools that you can use at night. What’s special about them is that they often have light-ups, electronic dance music, and other shiny, noisy things to attract a vibrant youth culture.
What might shock you is that there are a fair number of Japanese youth that attend these events for the sake of social media, with many saying things like, “I came here to upload it on Instagram.” The number of people who actually swim in the pool is close to zero.
That’s where Japanese YouTubers 6 Men Station come in. They decided to crash one of these Night Pool events and do the unspeakable: actually swim.
