About the Tokyo Michi Terrace Street Shot
Harmonious [adjective] in harmony, friendly and peaceful, in accord
In TOKYO —the world-class city that creates unique values; where history, the future
and culture co-exist—the thoughts and feelings of each and every one of its visitors
resonate, shine brightly, and share a prayer for peace.
We compose a powerful event suited to TOKYO CENTRAL, using artistic works with a
common theme and a strong message to bring the city together in harmony.
- CEO of JTQ Inc. / Space ComposerJunji Tanigawa
Our world-class city, Tokyo. Gyoko-dori Street, here in Tokyo Marunouchi, is without a doubt TOKYO CENTRAL. Michiterasu is coming to the center of Tokyo again this year. We have partnered with teamLab, who will be turning on a whole new light. Marunouchi will be reborn, as an artistic winter installation enveloped in light and sound on an unprecedented scale. The message of a highly-creative new city produced together with all those who visit. A symphony of light and sound spun together by those who gather there and by their thoughts as well. Building a bridge of dreams to a new TOKYO, that transcends Tokyo up to now. A festival of light for the future. That is the Tokyo Michiterasu 2016.
