Hello everyone! I am Maichi ONO, a 3rd year APM student and representative of the 2022 Tenku Festival Executive Committee. This year marks the 20th anniversary of the Tenku Festival and the first time in three years that the festival has been held in person. During the past few years, many people, not only us college students, have been forced to live with restrictions due to the effects of the pandemic. The Tenku Festival is no exception, however, it did not stop us from holding the Tenku Festival and from celebrating this year’s 20th anniversary! Just like this year's theme, "Never Stop Running 〜 今までもこれからも特別な時間〜", we have started with small steps and have continued to run and not let COVID-19 get the best of us. We hope we can bring you the energy and passion of APU students who never give up and continue to look forward to the future.
Hello, I am Yoojin Kim, Vice Representative of the Tenku Festival Executive Committee. It’s been three years since the last in-person festival, however, we hope you will enjoy this unique experience that can only be had at a Tenku Festival held on campus. We, the Executive Committee members, have worked hard to prepare new events that have never been done before so we hope you will come and make lots of good memories. We look forward to your participation and smiles!
In addition to being held face-to-face for the first time in three years, this year's Tenku Festival will mark the 20th anniversary of the festival. We have kept going, adjusting to this “new normal” without stopping even after the disappointment of last year's Tenku Festival, which was held online at the last minute due to the spread of COVID-19 at the time.
Your lives have changed dramatically over the past few years and you have undoubtedly been emotionally affected as well. Nevertheless, you have not stopped! You have come this far and you have come here to enjoy the Tenku Festival today. We are very happy to have met such wonderful people through the Tenku Festival."Never stop running!" Please enjoy the Tenku Festival, which has been running for 20 years now, to the fullest!
