Hello. I am Kurashima Keito, chairperson of the 95th May Festival Standing Committee.
For a long time, the May Festival has been an important annual occasion for UTokyo students to present the results of their activities. Even in the midst of the rapidly changing situation of COVID-19, we have held the past two May Festivals in an online format in order to protect such opportunities.
The 95th May Festival will be the first ever to be held in a hybrid format, combining face-to-face and online projects. We are now making preparations.
The theme of this year's May festival is ”Fusion”.
This theme is based on what May Festival is all about : a place where people from diverse backgrounds mix and harmonize with students, and where new values are created.
”Fusion” refers to the act of different things merging and harmonizing with each other. Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, restrictions have been imposed and we have not been able to enjoy our student life as much as we would like. However, UTokyo students have been ingenious. While ”FUSING” new styles into existing ones.
We sincerely hope that you will gather on the campuses as well as on our website and encounter the various charms of UTokyo students.
