  • Announcement of cancellation

    Regarding the “World Intangible Cultural Heritage Festival 2020” scheduled to be held on April 18 (Sat) and 19 (Sun), travel restrictions in each country will be considered in view of the current state of the worldwide spread of new coronavirus infections. After considering the situation and the response policy of Tokyo, etc., we decided to cancel the performance.
    Many of the performers scheduled to be invited this time are from foreign countries, and it is expected that difficulties will occur when entering and leaving Japan. Also, considering the safety and health of all visitors, we have come to a decision to cancel the event, which is a shame.
    Thank you for your understanding.
