These guys look like they should be dancing to Guitar Wolf instead.

This is Yoyogi Park, in the center of Tokyo, and these rockabilly dancers are there at the entrance every weekend, AFAICT. Check out the voluminous YT videos of them.

Directed by Andreas Nilsson, whose true, spellbinding talents are more apparent in any one of his other videos. Two not listed there: Junip (José González' rock band) "Black Refugee" and The Knife's "N.Y. Hotel".
