NL-Kanto is the interdisciplinary cultural program of the Netherlands in Japan on the occasion of the Tokyo 2020 Olympic and Paralympic Games. With the goal to promote cultural exchange between the Netherlands and Japan at large, NL-Kanto presents the outcome of ongoing collaborative projects at the center of global attention across Japan’s Kanto area throughout 2021. The program focuses on the themes of ‘inclusivity’ and ‘beyond the capital’, and demonstrates the interaction and sparks between Dutch and Japanese creative minds through various cultural and art events.

NL-Kanto is initiated and supported by the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in Tokyo, DutchCulture, centre for international cooperation and Dutch national cultural foundations.
