Tokyo Creative Salon will be held from March 15 to 31, 2020. This is Japan’s largest fashion and art event and the plan is to boost its case to become one of the world’s key fashion hubs. It will feature a variety of fashion and art initiatives across five key districts. Each district will present a line-up of exhibitions and activations such as street runways, art installations, dance performances and talk sessions.
Tokyo Creative Salon Nihonbashi will feature a theme, which advises visitors to turn off their mobile devices to fully experience the event. Some 10,000 Sacoche bags, which block smartphone reception, will be given out as gifts. The Nihonbashi venue will feature Sakura Menu Walk and Nihonbashi Art Gate where artists create works with the Nihonbashi (that is) unrecognisable by the smartphone theme. The event also features an exhibition Fun in the Life by Hobonichi, allowing people to experience Fun in the life through valuable shops and specially prepared products and food. A Ginza Rooftop Project will be held on the rooftops of several landmarks including Matsuya Ginza, Ginza Mitsukoshi, Wako and Tokyo Plaza Ginza. The district will also present other fashion shows and art installations. During the Tokyo Creative Salon at Daikanyama, visitors will get to try on vintage kimonos.
