Mitsui Fudosan Co., Ltd.

Tokyo, Japan, January 29, 2019 - Mitsui Fudosan Co., Ltd., a leading global real estate company headquartered in Tokyo, and the Japan Olympic Committee (JOC) announced today that the Nihonbashi meets OLYMPIC CONCERT will be held to mark 500 days to go before the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020 (hereafter “Tokyo 2020”) at the Nihonbashi Mitsui Hall operated by Mitsui Fudosan on Tuesday, March 12.

Every year since 1997, JOC has held the OLYMPIC CONCERT, an artistic collaboration created from the showing of Olympic footage and an orchestral performance to provide a sense of the value and wonder of the Olympics; the events are not only for sports fans, but also for those who are not too familiar with sports or the Olympics. This performance will be a special concert held to mark 500 days to go before Tokyo 2020.

This is the second concert to be held in Nihonbashi, following highly-praised performances to mark 1000 days before Tokyo 2020 in October 2017.

As the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020 Gold Partner in the category of “Real Estate Development,” Mitsui Fudosan will provide the venue for this event, along with promoting enjoyment of the district and the Olympic Movement, contributing to the success of Tokyo 2020.
