Tokimeki Transport

<Open Call Project SOCIAL DIVE>

The project will open a transport business of people who move things with the mark of “Tokimeki” (sparks) for “distance and time”. Tokimeki Transport staff will gradually deliver your gifts to important recipients using wagons, and other methods. (depending on the situation, it may take 1 month!)

Is the transport business really just about getting things delivered “cheap and fast”? In all eras, just like a “journey”, the movement of objects has had its own “story” (for example, how many people a journey or story fulfilled, or helped build society). With the result of contemporary transport businesses aiming at getting things delivered accurately and efficiently, the room for the “story” is getting smaller and smaller. We believe that for tomorrow’s human society, distance, time, and ways of thinking will become more important for imagining what lies between. Especially in the world today, we wish to love, sharpen, and ponder the feeling of excitement, thinking of far away places, the future, and the past.

Tokimeki Transport will lighten up our future by turning “moving things” into “stories about things.”

Tokimeki Transport

Composed of artists, musicians, dancers, entrepreneurs, and other individuals who share the same Tokimeki Transport philosophy, this is a hands on collective for people who love the intervals inbetween. By multiplying the creativity of each member by the clients’ sentiments about delivering their belongings, Tokimeki Transport aims to implement a delivery service that will inspire society as a whole and restore its humanity. The organic cooperation of members hailing from a plurality of disciplines will allow the development of multidirectional activities such as coordinator-led interviews, transportation as imagined by creators, an exhibition of such experiences, and think tanks to consider the future of delivery services.
