Navigating creator cultures through the streets of Tokyo.

What is Tokyo 20xx

Tokyo 20XX is a cultural insights project that dives into the city at street-level and looks at the creators shaping culture at its formative level, as well as the brands who are impacting these spaces.

Tokyo is home to some of the world’s most innovative, provocative, and eye-catching demonstrations of creator culture; and with a number of marquee, globally significant events on the horizon, developments over the coming years are set to catalyse cultural change in the city.

Tokyo 20XXは、東京における消費者インサイトのスペシャリストが制作しました。街のカルチャーを形成しているクリエイターと、その地域を活動拠点にしているブランドを、よりミクロなストリートレベルで分析しています。東京には世界でも最もイノベーティブで、挑発的で、人の目を引くクリエイター文化があります。

Shibuya

With its abundance of retail spaces, nightlife and music venues, Shibuya has come to represent a multi-sensory, hyper-consumerist playground, central to the development of youth and urban culture in Tokyo, and even playing a major role in influencing pop cultural trends throughout the globe.
