Once again, JAPANESE STREETS spent two days at Design Festa, promoted as Asia’s largest art event.

As usual, the huge art event was held at Tokyo Big Sight. More than 60,000 vistors admired the art of 12,000 artists at over 4,000 booths. Let that sink in. To visit every single booth in two days you would have to visit 3.7 booths per minute! That’s how humongous this event is.

In spite of the scale, I still managed to pick out a reasonable number of artists and visitors to introduce on JAPANESE STREETS. Enjoy!
