“Old meets New: Tokyo 150 Years” – A Festival of Celebration and Enjoyment


To commemorate the 150th anniversary of the renaming of Edo to Tokyo and the establishment of the Tokyo Government, the Tokyo Metropolitan Government (TMG) will implement the “Old meets New: Tokyo 150 Years” program.

Along with holding commemorative events and related PR projects, this will be a diverse program linked with existing programs and events of the TMG bureaus and Tokyo municipalities.

To celebrate this milestone with Tokyo’s citizens and build attachment to Tokyo and a sense of unity ahead of the Olympic and Paralympic Games through a rediscovery and recognition of the strengths and charms of Tokyo as a city, such as the tradition, history, culture, and skill that have been amassed from Edo to modern times to the present. Tokyo 150 Years will also serve as an opportunity to focus on the Tokyo 2020 Games and beyond.
