PechaKucha Night

Meet creative Tokyoites share their ideas in the "PechaKucha 20x20 format"!

If you're looking for a chance to meet interesting Tokyoites, I recommend you to head on down to PechaKucha Night.

PechaKucha Nights are fun gatherings where creative people get together and share their ideas, works, thoughts or just about anything in the “PechaKucha 20x20 format.” Speakers show 20 images and have 20 seconds to talk about each one as the images advance automatically.

The beauty of this event is that absolutely anyone can participate!
I recently saw my friends talk passionately about Aomori Prefecture in Northern Japan. They also gave a charming introduction to their picture book project of Old Tsugaru Folk Tales which they had translated into modern Japanese and English alongside some beautiful illustrations.

Some speakers presentations are about commercial projects, while others are personal and incredibly funny. All of the presenters are passionate and inspiring in their own ways.

I highly recommend travelers go experience this exciting event held in the heart of Tokyo.

* PechaKucha Nights are now happening in over 700 cities around the world, but it all started in Tokyo. It was devised and shared by Astrid Klein and Mark Dytham of Klein Dytham Architecture almost 10 years go.
