Tokyo Wonder Site Residency provides opportunities for international creators from the fields of art, design, architecture and curation to stay, create works and conduct a research in Tokyo. Our new facility "Tokyo Wonder Site Residency", which was launched in Sumida in the autumn of 2014, offers private rooms and shared studios for the creators.

Open Studio is a special occasion for the public to see the creative process of residing creators, exchange ideas with them, and hear their talks. 9 creators from 7 countries will show their activities and there will be a presentation by the creators.

Facility tour / Information Display:
- Visitors will have an opportunity to see the rooms and common spaces where creators stay and communicate with each other.
- We provide the information on the partner institutions of exchange residency programs and answer any inquiries by visitors.
