Venue : Tokyo Midtown When : Early Oct - Late Nov 2024

A visit to Tokyo Midtown is a good thing when you're interested in modern architecture. But the best month to visit might be October since that's when you can enjoy Tokyo Midtown Design Touch, an event that's all about design. With a different theme every year, no two experiences will ever be the same.

This event has been held every year since the first one in 2007, and the number of visitors has been increasing every year. You can visit the event all throughout Tokyo Midtown, and you'll find a lot of activities to watch, experience, or participate in. Most of the events are free, but at some, there's an admission charge.

Midtown Garden is an open area where huge installations are built every year by top designers.

An event like this can’t be without competition, so this event has one too. The Tokyo Midtown Award will award designers from all over the world who participated with their artwork, an architectural draft, or their golden design. In Tokyo Midtown Galleria you can find a lot of art or design placed all over the complex, while the modern architecture of Tokyo Midtown Galleria serves as a great backdrop for the event.

Poster design is growing in profile, and is also part of this experience, with high-quality designs printed on high-quality paper. It's interesting to see how this technique of printing is trying to catch up to the digital industry, which is all about the sharpness of the image.

Getting there

To get there, take the Hibiya Line or Oedo Line to Roppongi station, and go to exit 8.

Interested in countries and their cultures all over the world. There's little I do not like and I try to experience as much as possible, write or film about it and share it with others.
