Held purpose and implementation summary

Purpose of the Event

The area around Tokyo Station is a diverse community, where Japan’s history, future, and culture coexist. It is a town like no other, a dynamic blend of history, tradition, culture, art, business, and innovation. It continues to evolve as a nodal point that connects Tokyo with the rest of Japan, and Japan with the rest of the world. This same area has hosted annual winter events since the “Tokyo Millenario” was held in 1999. This year too, we wish to brighten the future (shine light on the unknown, “michi wo terasu” in Japanese) from the Tokyo Marunouchi area by holding “Tokyo Michiterasu 2017.”
