What is Tokyo Idol Festival? Part 1

Many of Idol Fans must be aware already about this event called Tokyo Idol Festival. Held for the first time at 2010, this event has become the biggest idol event in the world with 138 idols and 41,282 peoples attending this event last year. With the last year’s worldwide ticket purchase availability, this event can be categorized as International Event.

This event was organized by Tokyo Idol Festival Executive Comittee from 2010 to 2014, before being taken over by Tokyo Idol Project for 2015 event.

This project was proposed for the first time by Kadosawa Seita from Fuji TV, also the ex-producer of Idoling!!! That’s why Idoling!!! was headlining the first TIF, either as performer, MC and such.

Kadosawa said in an interview that he want to spread various idols who have their own specialty, and instead of calling it “Idol Warring Period”, he want it to be called “Idol Diversification Era”. And instead of using Fuji TV organizers, he established “Tokyo Idol Festival Executive Commitee”.

In 24th March 2015, the press conference was held for the introduction of Tokyo Idol Project by Fuji TV, and it was also announced that Tokyo Idol Festival will be organized by them. The conference was attended by following idols : Idoling!!!, Sakura Gakuin, Tokyo Girls Style, Vanilla Beans, Nakano Fujo Sisters, Momoiro Clover and YGA.

Why Budokan?

Nippon Budokan, a well-known concert arena in Japan. Located in the heart of Tokyo. The building is modeled after Yumedono (Hall of Dreams) in Hōryū-ji in Nara. It has a capacity of 10,000. Nippon Budokan (will referred as Budokan later) was built and opened at 1964 for Judo Competition of 1964 Summer Olympic. It still used as the venue for Martial Art competition but why this venue become one of the most prestigious venue in Japan? Of course it’s not about the facility, Tokyo Dome City Hall is better in facility, of course not about the size, Tokyo Dome is bigger, and also not about the capacity, the Olympic Stadium is the number. So, why? It’s all about the “Magic”. So let’s see this “magic” of Budokan. Continue reading Why Budokan?
