On that day, Ms. Yumi Katsura will open the ceremony followed by Doburokku’s special performance, Zawachin, the PR Ambassador’s impersonating make-up, and erica’s, popular with females junior and high school students, live performance of “Kokuuta” songs, and much, much more. Ms. Aika Kanda, a former NHK announcer, will MC the event.
“Machi-kon Tokyo Dome” is unprecedented and epoch-making with the following reasons and can provide many an opportunity of meeting and communicating with others that no past “machi-kon” were able to;

1) Approximately 10,000 single males and females (5,000 each) will participate in this event, and the size is unprecedented.
*We are going to beat the world record.
2) There is a diversity among participants who will come from all over Japan
3) It will held in Tokyo Dome, which is both world famous and spacious.
4) The fee is reasonably set at 1,500 yen per a male and 1,000 yen per a female participant.
5) It will be a collaborative event with “Furusato Matsuri Tokyo 2015”, a large-scale event of 410,000 attendees in 10 days in 2014.
  *The regular opening hours will be extended and the site will be reserved solely for this event.
6) Sponsoring companies will provide gifts such as diamond jewelry, a Hawaii vacation and gift certificates to aesthetic salons.
7) A selected guest will have a chance to wear a tiara that is estimated at several million US dollars (planned).
Now that “machi-kon” has become well-known in the society, there are many “machi-kons” held all over Japan. However, the committee handling this event does not view “machi-kon” simply as a profitable business but as one of the solution to Japan’s “the unmarried or the late-married”, which inevitably results in the aging of this society by providing the young male and female participants an opportunity to consider marriage and childbirth as an option in their lives.
This even will be held at the site of “Furusato Matsuri Tokyo 2015” which has more than 300 organizations and related personnel from all over Japan. This signifies that the young attendees will be exposed to the cultures and people of various places and will understand their appeal. They will also be able to treat such experiences as something real and emotion-provoking. We aim, through this event, to contribute to the solution of Japan’s declining birth rate and to the renaissance of remote areas.
