Tokyo Tokyo FESTIVAL (TTF)is an initiative that will see a variety of cultural programs unfold in the run-up to 2020 when the Olympic and Paralympic Games will take place, promoting Tokyo’s appeal as a city of arts and culture.
TTF will be full swing from April 2020 onwards, when many programs will be implemented. Prior to this there will be a promotional event on Wednesday, March 4 in KITTE Marunouchi.
This event will at last see the unveiling of the thirteenth project of the TTF core program, “Tokyo Tokyo FESTIVAL Special 13.” This program comprises thirteen projects chosen from 2,436 submissions from Japan and overseas, the last of which was the only one kept under wraps. The Governor of Tokyo Yuriko Koike will announce the project title and details on the day of the event.
A selection of upcoming projects from the program will also be outlined. Featuring celebrity “tarento” Shoko Nakagawa as special guest, this event will provide an in-depth look at the appeal of a cultural festival only possible in Tokyo.
We hope you take the opportunity to come along with friends and family and enjoy TTF, which is set to heat up further from April onwards.
