Music industries from all over the world will gather at the "11th Tokyo International Music Market (TIMM)" on October 23, 2014.
Three music groups will convene at Zepp DiverCity in Odaiba and play Japanese music to the world.
We believe that music has the power to move people's hearts and help them move forward. Japanese pop music has resonated in the hearts of generations of Japanese people. It has deeply influenced Japanese society and culture, and we believe it will continue to do so in the future.
Japan has suffered through some hard times in the past, but it is looking to experience a brand new start with the 2020 Olympic games.
We want to use the power of music to help Japan overcome the damages from the earthquake, and to help it move forward towards a brighter future.
We started "JAPAN NIGHT" to assemble Japanese artists who have spread their music all around world, as well as to present new Japanese artists to the world.
The first "JAPAN NIGHT" will be held at the venue that held the Tokyo Olympics, several legendary sports events, and countless entertainment events. It will be final week of events at Kokuritsu Kyogijo, which will be closing it's doors on May 31, 2014.
"JAPAN NIGHT" will welcome the new Kokuritsu Kyogijo that will open in 2019 and bring world sports and entertainment to Japan once again. The new stadium will be the center of attention for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, which will be the beginning of Japan's new start.
