Man-Tora! Live in Tokyo is the third live album released by The Manhattan Transfer. The title is a shortening of Manhattan Toransufā (マンハッタン・トランスファー?), the Japanese transliteration of the band's name. The songs were recorded during their 1983 Japan tour to promote their album Bodies and Souls at Tokyo's Nakano Sun Theater. Some of the songs from these concerts also appeared on their 1984 album, Bop Doo-Wopp.
