It was touch and go, but the Tokyo event for this year’s Yuriten is back on!
Earlier today, the official Yuriten website announced a new location and date for this year’s Tokyo event. The exhibition will be held from April 28 – May 4 at Lightbox Aoyama. Thirty artists are still confirmed for the show.
The Tokyo Yuriten was originally planned to be held at Ikebukuro’s Marui department store from March 17 – 25. The show was cancelled, with the staff citing difficulties that participating creators would have faced in displaying and selling their work.
Two other Yuriten events are still planned to run as scheduled:
- Osaka: Namba Parks – 3/31/2018 – 4/8/2018
- Fukuoka: April 2018
Last year’s Yuriten featured teases for the Kase-san and Morning Glories anime project, prior to its official unveiling.
