It lives!

The city has just become more exciting!

In TAB News by Paul Baron 2004-10-01

We built what we thought was most missing in our city of Tokyo: an Art and Design amplifier. We know there are hundreds of artists and venues broadcasting in the city, yet so few ways to hear about them.

We feel that this site will appeal to the fervent artgoers who want to check it all out and built it to also encourage the more casual visitors to turn off their TV and get out.
By making the website fully bilingual we also wanted to broadcast beyond the Japanese people, beyond the borders of Japan and reach out to all the foreigners living in Japan or planning on visiting Japan as well as art professionals living abroad.

We can now all follow the beat.
Welcome to Tokyo,

Welcome to Tokyoartbeat!
