Makoto Nomura Senju Pun-Filled Music Festival “1010 People in Senju in 2020” had been rescheduled for Saturday, October 31, 2020. However, the outbreak of coronavirus (COVID-19)has made it problematic to hold this event as planned in venues throughout Senju (including the Senju Sports Park)and so we have decided to cancel this year’s event.
With regard to the rest of this year, we will reorganize and continue the program with a focus on holding events/activities online. More detailed information will be announced on the official website and SNS accounts. (09/17/2020)

Please note that the program might be changed depending on decisions, orders, etc. by the Japanese and Tokyo Metropolitan Government. (07/16/2020)

Punning has the power to virtually force a link between seemingly unrelated words through their similar-sounding elements. “Pun-filled music,” music that creatively leverages this power, has been the subject of collaborative projects with people of all ages.
In 2014 the participatory concert“1010 People in Senju” was held in the Adachi Market, a fish market of Adachi-ku’s Senju neighborhood. Citizen performers numbering 1010 people took part in the event, which attracted a multitude of visitors with its colorful array of musical instruments and acts.
This time around, we are planning a large-scale participatory concert utilizing various spots around the Senju district.
