The Tokyo Girls Collection Executive Committee (Planning/Production: W TOKYO Co., Ltd.) will hold “TGC MATSUYAMA 2024 by TOKYO GIRLS COLLECTION (hereinafter referred to as TGC Matsuyama 2024)” at the Ehime Budokan on Saturday, July 13, 2024. We have decided to hold the event. This will be the first time it will be held in the Shikoku region.
■The first TGC in Shikoku history will be held in Matsuyama City, Ehime Prefecture, which is blessed with magnificent natural scenery and abundant tourism resources!
At TGC, we utilize TGC’s platform to not only disseminate the charms and industries of the region to the whole country, but also to provide opportunities to experience “Tokyo’s cutting edge”, which is our unique philosophy of regional revitalization. Originally, the “TGC Regional Revitalization Project” was launched in 2015. Starting with “TGC Kitakyushu 2015” held in the same year, the region has been expanded year by year to include Hiroshima, Toyama, Shizuoka, Kumamoto, Yamanashi, and Wakayama.
It has been decided that Shikoku will be held for the first time in TGC history as the 8th city to host the event! The venue for the memorable first event in Shikoku is Matsuyama City. Matsuyama City, Ehime Prefecture is a non-profit city full of diverse resources, including magnificent natural scenery surrounded by the sea and mountains, numerous tourist attractions such as nationally famous hot springs and castles, and traditional culture that can be seen throughout the prefecture. It is an area with always high potential. By holding TGC Matsuyama and disseminating information using TGC’s platform, we will maximize the appeal of Matsuyama City and Ehime Prefecture not only to local youth but also to everyone across the country, contributing to regional revitalization. We aim to
We will work together with all the performers, partners, stakeholders, and visitors to fully convey the charms of Matsuyama City to the whole country through TGC Matsuyama 2024.

I have performed at TGC in Tokyo as well as TGC all over the country, but I am very happy to be able to perform at the first event in Shikoku, Matsuyama City, Ehime Prefecture! I haven’t been to Matsuyama yet, but I have the impression that it is surrounded by nature such as the sea and mountains, and also has hot springs. I also heard that tangerine juice comes out of the taps at the airport, so I definitely want to try it, and I also want to enjoy delicious food including seafood and hot springs!
TGC is a very exciting opportunity to meet our fans up close. We would be happy if everyone who comes to TGC Matsuyama can join in the fun! Let’s have fun together in Matsuyama in summer!

We would like to thank everyone in Ehime Prefecture, the executive committee, the companies and organizations that sponsor and support us, and everyone involved. I would like to express my heartfelt gratitude.
The charm of Matsuyama has just reached its 90th anniversary since it was established as a national park. In front of you is the Seto Inland Sea, Dogo Onsen, which has a history of 3,000 years and is said to be Japan’s oldest hot spring, and which appeared in the Kojiki and Nihon Shoki, as well as Matsuyama Castle, which has 12 extant castle towers. , delicious seafood, mountain food, and many other attractions. In particular, the Dogo Onsen Main Building began construction in January 2019, and after five and a half years, the entire building will finally reopen on July 11th (Thursday). We are very grateful to be able to hold Tokyo Girls Collection Matsuyama on July 13th (Saturday) two days later.
I think the fusion of Japan’s oldest Dogo Onsen and the cutting-edge Tokyo Girls Collection is a perfect match for the theme “The Next Chapter.” We hope that this will be an opportunity for more people to reaffirm the appeal of Matsuyama, and for young people in particular to be inspired and to feel attached to and proud of Matsuyama. In order to make this event a great success, I would like to ask for your help and offer my greetings. Thank you very much.

I heard about the Tokyo Girls Collection about a year ago from someone involved. In past regional events, many cases were centered around local governments, so we approached Matsuyama City, which has a large-scale detention facility, and received a very positive response. This will lead to the dissemination of information for Ehime as a whole, and since Dogo Onsen is the face of Ehime Prefecture, and this year is the time for the reopening of the Dogo Onsen main building, the prefecture will also provide support to ensure a successful implementation. I would like to support you and guide you.
We also hope to make the most of TGC’s information dissemination capabilities to help more people learn about the charms of our prefecture, and to make the day a great success.

communities through collaboration with local governments. It’s been about a year and a half since I started this project aiming to contribute and promote the SDGs, and I’ve been able to travel to many places.
On the TGC stage, LDH artists collaborated with local dance students to foster the next generation through dance and create entertainment experience opportunities to promote SDG Goal 4, “Quality Education for All.” We have been doing this. In addition, at the dance workshop show that I produce myself, I mainly focus on creating opportunities for people of all ages and genders to come into contact with dance in order to promote SDG Goal 3, “Good health and well-being for all.” We are happy to do so. The best part of this event is that there is a children’s area, so parents and children can participate together, and everyone from kids to the elderly can have fun, regardless of whether they are good at dancing or not. I think it’s attractive that you can dance, get some exercise, work up a good sweat, and be healthy. -W TOKYO×LDH JAPAN What is the Regional Revitalization Project?- W TOKYO Co., Ltd. and LDH JAPAN Co., Ltd. will form a partnership in November 2022 to utilize TGC venues held across the country to contribute to local communities through entertainment such as dance and collaboration with local governments. , a new project aiming to promote SDGs. Mainly, creating opportunities for people of all ages and genders to experience dance, which promotes SDGs Goal 3, “Good health and well-being for all,” and nurturing the next generation through dance, which promotes SDGs Goal 4, “Quality education for all.” We are working on three axes: creating entertainment experience opportunities, and collaborating with local governments, W TOKYO, and LDH JAPAN that promote SDGs Goal 17, “Let’s achieve our goals through partnership.”
