A simple concept that’s spread across the world, Pecha Kucha is a night for the inquisitive and the creative. Taking to the stage to introduce their speciality subject, presenters have 20 seconds to discuss each of their 20 slides. From architects to AI scientists, the speakers are a mix of Tokyo’s greatest minds.
