Tokyo Tokyo FESTIVAL is an initiative that unfolded a variety of cultural programs in the run-up to the Olympic and Paralympic Games held in Tokyo, to promote its appeal as a city of arts and culture.
The Tokyo Metropolitan Government and Arts Council Tokyo sought a wide range of creative and innovative ideas from the public for projects that would become the core of the cultural programs for the Tokyo Tokyo FESTIVAL. From a total of 2,436 project proposals submitted from within Japan and overseas, 13 were selected for implementation. The 13 projects were collectively named “Tokyo Tokyo FESTIVAL Special 13,” and were implemented in sequence.
