Tokyo Metropolitan Government and Arts Council Tokyo (Tokyo Metropolitan Foundation for History and Culture), co-sponsors of the Tokyo Tokyo FESTIVAL Special 13, regret to announce the postponement of all its project-related events and activities.
Thirteen projects were selected from among 2,436 proposals submitted by applicants from Japan and abroad. While implementation of some of these projects had begun in September 2019, most of them were scheduled between April and September 2020.

The Tokyo Metropolitan Government and the Arts Council Tokyo will closely monitor future developments and make further announcements regarding the new schedule and other related matters.
