Tokyo celebrates all things creative at the “Shinjuku Creators Festa,” a 17-day art event being held around the city’s Shinjuku Station. World-famous names, such as Yayoi Kusama and CG-artist Yoichiro Kawaguchi will be displaying works, while student submissions, including film projects and installations, are also being featured.

For those who want to participate, there will be a live mural-painting event and art workshops held by professionals. By spreading events across Shinjuku, the festival has been designed to not only showcase artists’ works, but also encourage visitors to discover parts of the area they didn’t know before; Aug. 23-Sept. 8.

Shinjuku Station Area; Shinjuku Station, JR Yamanote Line; opening times vary. Free admission. For more information, visit www.scf-web.net or call 03-5273-4220 (Shinjuku Creators Festa Office).
