An international event exploring the future of urban development, SusHi Tech Tokyo 2024, was launched in Tokyo on Saturday. The month-long event, organized by the Tokyo Metropolitan Government, will include a series of international conferences and other programs at various locations in Tokyo.

Launched in 2022, the event aims to present solutions to societal challenges using cutting-edge technologies and promote a vision of sustainable cities. The agenda includes international conferences with mayors from around the world, held from May 15 to 17, and networking events for startups on May 15 and 16. The Showcase program, open to the public, allows visitors to experience virtual reality, among other things, and runs from April 27 to May 26.

The Showcase Program will be held at four locations on Tokyo’s waterfront, including the National Museum of Emerging Science and Innovation, also known as Miraikan, in Koto Ward. Test drives of next-generation mobility units, sales of burgers made with plant-based alternative meats, a lecture by astronaut Soichi Noguchi and other activities are planned for the event.

“I would like [people] to experience the future with all five senses, such as seeing, touching, listening and tasting,” Tokyo Governor Yuriko Koike said Saturday during the opening ceremony at the National Museum of Emerging Science and Innovation.
