This Year's Development Theme

People from all different countries
visit Tokyo, gather,
cheer enthusiastically
and impart their emotions.
The cheers of those people coming together
as one in an anthem…
Our installation of beautifully animated lights
and images
also comes together as
though it were an “anthem.”
