Shibuya Stream is the pop culture center of Tokyo, home to the "all-too-famous intersection" built in 2018; the headquarters of Google; and the home to the "new" Shibuya Stream, which was built in 2018 and is the first of its kind in the world.



The "Tokyo AI Festival" will consist of main events by three locally generated AI communities and related events by VC Salon and others.

AICU's US Office is proposing the following support services to maximize the non-Japanese speaking participant experience at this event.

For international startups, direct contact with key countries, cultures, and communities to get a sense of the economy (food, office rent, consumer life, popular smartphone apps, etc.) and understanding is a very important part of the engagement and will help you develop your business and startups. We believe that this will be an important activity in the development of segregation and cooperation between your business and startups. Of course, it is also an important promotional opportunity for those who are looking at the consumer market for creative AI, such as those pioneered by Niji-Journey and NovelAI from abroad. Please contact us if there is anything AICU can help you with in terms of community development and localization.

AICU is a company that creates engagement opportunities that go beyond putting out sponsor logos, specifically "creating people who create"!
