What we do

Tokyo Caravan

Conceived by playwright, director, and actor Hideki Noda, this is a cultural movement based on the concept of engendering new forms of expression through the mingling of cultures brought about by encounters between a diverse array of artists. Starting in the Komazawa district of Tokyo in 2015, it has delivered genre-transcending performances in Rio de Janeiro, the Tohoku region (Sendai and Soma), Roppongi, Kyoto (Kameoka and Nijo Castle), Hachioji, Kumamoto, Toyota, Kochi, and Akita. Tokyo Caravan will continue to pop up in a range of locations nationwide in FY2019, presenting a “Cultural Circus” and offering an ongoing program of exchange that goes beyond national and regional boundaries, thereby laying cultural foundations that will serve as a lasting legacy of the Tokyo 2020 Games.
