Outline of  J-CULTURE FEST

Event Concept
In 2017, Tokyo International Forum will celebrate its 20th anniversary.
As a show of appreciation, TIF will host a New Year's event involving
“tradition and evolution”
performances by first-rate musician and actors involved in traditional
Japanese performance arts, and a “New Year's Theme Park”

This multifaceted event will provide visitors with opportunities to become
