    Last year the newly opened Tokyo Midtown Hibiya hosted “Hibiya Festival” for the first time to revive “culture and entertainment town” Hibiya, at the heart of Tokyo.

    Hibiya Festival represents a great opportunity to see a variety of stage shows in an accessible format – free, open-air performances of musicals, opera, dance and theater.

    The festival, which mobilized some 1.7 million people last year, will be back for the second edition this year with a fanfare, starting with a grand opening produced by world-famous director Amon Miyamoto.

    Here’s a sneak peek of this exciting festival.
