Tokyo Festival 2017 to be held this fall

The Tokyo Festival Organizing Committee (Chairman: Shigeo Fukuchi) is proud to present the Tokyo Festival, to be held principally around the Ikebukuro area of Toshima Ward for 74 days from Friday, September 22 to Monday, December 4, 2017.

What is the Tokyo Festival?
This is an urban multidisciplinary arts festival that aims to connect with the world through Tokyo's deep and diverse arts and culture. The Festival aims to showcase the appeal of Tokyo's artistic culture in an easy-to-understand manner, and enhancing Tokyo’s own artistic creativity at the same time. In the mid-to-long term, we will continue to work on resolving social issues, developing human resources, developing urban areas, and tackling globalization.

Mr. Satoshi Miyagi (Director/Producer of Human Resources Development, Asian Performing Arts Forum/Artistic Director of Shizuoka Performing Arts Center [SPAC]) has been appointed as the festival’s General Director from 2018 to 2020.
