The “Culture City of East Asia” project is a three-nation event based on an agreement reached during a meeting of the culture ministers of Japan, China and South Korea. The project selects one city annually in each of these three countries in which to hold yearlong cultural and arts events and exchange projects, furthering the development of the host cities as well as promoting mutual understanding and solidarity in the region through the power of culture.

In this fourth edition, alongside fellow 2017 host cities Changsha (China) and Daegu (South Korea), Kyoto will organize a wide range of events, including traditional culture, contemporary art, performing arts, music, manga (comics), and anime (animation). Through the framework of its interchange with the other two host cities, Kyoto will strengthen reciprocity across the whole of East Asia as well as deepen ties among Japan, China and South Korea by the power of culture, and revitalize the region.
