After its first edition in 2017, Tokyo Candoll -BOYS- is following the same road to success as its predecessor, Tokyo Candoll! As you can guess from its name, Japanese boy groups are competing in this contest. Just like with Tokyo Candoll, the three stages of selections and the finals are taking place live in Japan. The winning band, chosen by the audience, gets a chance to perform on the Karasu stage at Japan Expo.
