Design Festa is a two-day art and design festival held regularly in the Tokyo Big Sight convention center in Odaiba, Tokyo.
Tokyo Big Sight, also known by its official name of Tokyo International Exhibition Center, is the largest convention center in Japan. Located in the Odaiba area of Tokyo, it hosts numerous conferences, exhibitions and events throughout the year.
West Exhibition Halls, South Exhibition Halls, Aomi Exhibition Halls, and Conference Tower reopened as of June 1st, but will be closed if there are no events taking place.
Tokyo Big Sight is comprised of several buildings. The most notable section is the conference tower, which is made up of four inverted triangles balanced on columns. The reception hall inside can seat 1,100 visitors and the 22 conference rooms all overlook the nearby Tokyo Bay. Events are also held in both the East and West Exhibition Halls, as well as a rooftop exhibition area.
The grounds are dotted with a collection of seven modern artworks from a variety of Japanese and international artists. Works include a stone, water and light creation by Korean artist Lee Ufan, a painting by Irish-born Michael Craig-Martin and a large-scale marble piece by Japanese sculptor Hidetoshi Nagasawa.
Tokyo Big Sight offers a full calendar of events and exhibitions throughout the year, with many events taking place on weekdays. Popular and recurring events include the hugely popular Tokyo Anime Fair and the Tokyo Motor Show, as well as the biannual Design Festa which takes place every spring and autumn.
Tokyo Big Sight is convenient to a number of methods of transportation. Direct buses connect Tokyo Station and the convention center in 40 minutes, while the Yurikamome monorail from Shimbashi Station delivers attendees to the site in only 22 minutes. Tokyo Big Sight is also linked to Haneda Airport by a limousine bus, and is an hour from the city’s main international hub at Narita Airport. Or, for a truly unique way to arrive at a conference in style, enjoy a 30-minute waterbus ride from Hinode Pier to the Ariake Terminal adjacent to the exhibition hall.
