Rediscover the richness of Tokyo's water through art, and spread its image as the "aquaopolis of the 21st century" across Japan and the entire world

Water serves as both the source of civilization, as well as the destructor of life, it even has the power to shift the shape of nature. Moreover, water overcomes man-made boundaries as it circulates across all sorts of lands. As a city that grew among rich water veins, research will be conducted based on the past and present of Tokyo, with various art projects that forge a close connection between water and people.
