Tokyo Suki Fes, an event sharing Japanese culture with the world will be held at Ueno Cultural Park. The concept of “suki” (refinement) that was talked about in Okakura Kakuzo’s “The Book of Tea” has left a large impression on the development of modern Japanese art. In Japanese, there are two words that are pronounced “suki”: one meaning "like" and the other meaning "tasteful." The aesthetics of this event are based upon a refined and tasteful feeling, which will be presented to a world audience, with workshops, art exhibitions, concerts, and more.
