Design Festa No. 46 will be held in mid November at Tokyo Big Sight—one of the number of enormous buildings in Odaiba that looks like an alien landing craft. With 3,000 booths and 10,000 exhibitors, the organizers claim it is the largest art event in Asia if not the world. Entry at 800 yen (for pre-purchased tickets) could be a little lower – especially considering that they charge the exhibitors as well. However, there is at least a day’s worth of entertainment – including two stages of live music as well as continuous drama, performances, dance and movies shown in the ‘Theatre Space’.
The event runs from 11am to 7pm on both the Saturday and Sunday. Closest stations are Kokusai Tenjijo on the Yurikamome Line and Tokyo Teleport on the JR Rinkai Line.
