Sumiko Iwamuro: Your Coolest Grandma
This 82-years old usually works in the restaurant by day. At night, she transforms into a DJ and spins for the Tokyo crowd. She actually thought of doing something else instead of her daytime job. Every granny would probably choose to go to a nearby social elderly club or maybe decide to attend the neighborhood’s senior bridge club.
Sumiko Iwamuro: Dumplings by Day. Parties by Night
No. Not this woman. After making dumplings in a kitchen, she chooses to continue and attend parties by night.
Your grandma probably tucks away at 4 PM for a quick afternoon nap, eat something and probably sleeps around 8 PM latest snoring in front of the TV.
For this 82-years Japanese old, Sumiko Iwamuro, it is just the beginning of the day. During nights she starts to empower party people with techno music.

Haha, you can’t imagine your granny doing this, but hey come on, we live in 2018.
Sumiko has no plans of retiring and still as big dreams. One of her biggest goals is to take on the decks in New York.
