The phoenix drawn on the Karamon, an important cultural property, has been digitally revived, announcing the arrival of autumn and adding gorgeous colors to Nijo Castle.
The phoenix painted on the Karamon Gate of Nijo Castle will serve as your guide, and you will be able to experience Nijo Castle in autumn, colored by the art of NAKED, with all five senses. You can enjoy the fantastic night view of Nijo Castle, which has historical buildings such as the National Treasure Ninomaru Palace and the Important Cultural Properties Higashi Otemon Gate and Karamon Gate. This time, the projection mapping show to Karamon, an important cultural property, which was simplified to avoid the three Cs as much as possible after the corona disaster, will be revived. The appearance of the phoenix gracefully flying not only on the gate but also on the floor expresses the arrival of autumn. On the stone walls of the inner moat, there will be a projection mapping show of the phoenix that spreads all over, and participatory digital art where your own flowers will be reflected on the inner moat. Yoyogi Park’s popular cafe, TREE by NAKED yoyogi park, will also have food stalls where you can enjoy autumn sweets and hot drinks in the front garden of the kitchen. At Metaverse Nijo Castle, challenge virtual ikebana that will continue to bloom forever as a web 3.0 art work
In the front garden of the kitchen, we will exhibit a collaborative work by artist Ryotaro Muramatsu and Mr. Senko Ikenobo, the next Ikenobo Ikebana master. This collaboration work is deployed in both real (physical) and metaverse Nijo Castle. Interactive art where visitors can participate in real ikebana production with their own digital flowers. In the Metaverse, Senko Ikenobo will co-create a virtual ikebana work that will continue to bloom forever, where visitors’ digital flowers will be arranged. In the real world, you can enjoy the once-in-a-lifetime ikebana art by fusing digital flowers with the ikebana of the moment.
