Myojo-waraku, the festival where techies and creatives meet

Myojo-Waraku LogoA tech and creative festival that takes place in Fukouka Japan, Myojo-Waraku has now opened its registration for 2012.

Inspired by the concept of SXSW (South by Southwest) that happens annually in Austin, Texas, the event aims to bring together tech stars in the region and help everyone make new connections.

There will be presentations from several startups and esteemed entrepeneurs followed by workshops and even a musical performance by popular bands and DJs from Japan.

The event is also held strategically at Fukouka because the city is often considered as a gateway for Japan to other Asian countries because its geographical proximity is much closer to Seoul and Shanghai than to Tokyo.

To those who happen to be in Fukouka, loves the creatives and is a tech geek, be sure to check out this one-of-a-kind event.
