Host Town Initiative Showcase
Pre-Event on August 27th


During the duration of the 2020 Tokyo Olympic and Paralympic Games, we will present the 2020 Host Town House in the Ariake District of Tokyo (Musashino University Ariake Campus). There will be many competitive venues gathering for the host town-related events to promote the uniqueness of local cities,
both in Japan and overseas.

The 2020 Host Town House is not merely meant to share about the cultural exchange and activities that have happened so far between the host cities and partner countries.
We will also plan and support the development of creative events, booths, and food that will enable host town exchanges to continue beyond 2020.

During the installation period, we expect to attract approximately 10,000 visitors per day from Japan and overseas. We hope you can join us at the 2020 Host Town House, the biggest event for this Host Town Initiative.

The 2020 Host Town House pre-event called 2020 Host Town House Showroom will be held on Tuesday, August 27, 2019, at Happo-en (1-1-1 Shirokane-dai, Minato-ku, Tokyo). There will be booths that show a portion of the 2020 Host Town House and model rooms that showcase the different aspects of this initiative, from cultural exchanges to events with athletes. Guests will be able to see the various types of events that are helping to foster this movement.
We will also showcase our special menu development, booths highlighting cities that were affected by the 2011 tsunami, and supporting member companies.
This pre-event is intended for host town municipalities, companies supporting the initiative, embassies, media professionals, and others.

Local cities that have already announced their participation in the 2020 Host Town House will have the privilege to run a model room that showcases their town’s activities. Happo-en will help them create the model room and food menu free of charge.

With one year to go before the actual 2020 Host Town House event, you are cordially invited to participate in this special pre-event.

※ 1. Please note in advance that the order in which the participation in the above-mentioned 2020 Host Town House is announced will be first come, first served.
※ 2. The content of the free model room will be created after consulting with the Host Town Promotion Committee and relevant local governments.
