In the run-up to the Olympic and Paralympic Games, we are carrying out TOPACO (Tomin Performer’s Corner), a forum enabling any Tokyo resident to present their creative endeavors.
Along with groups based in Minamiosawa, TOPACO Vol.2 will feature appearances by citizen performers ranging from children to adults normally engaged in a variety of fields.
