Various places have held similar events since 2012, including a few cities outside of Japan. It’s part of Doraemon’s “birthday” countdown, because he “was” born in year 2112 in the futuristic anime and manga series.

Doraemon is a robotic cat who travels back in time from future to aid a pre-teen boy named Nobita Nobi. Originally started as a manga series (which have sold over 100 million copies), it also turns into popular TV shows and movie franchise.
