experience, said about this first attempt, “Naked-san’s” The wonders of Japan through digital technology. I have been participating in this project for the past few years, agreeing with the feeling that I want to spread the word.

“NAKED FLOWERS 2022 Autumn World Heritage Nijo Castle” will be an event that Kyoto City has been working on as a special event. The projection mapping of the important cultural property Karamon, which was simplified to avoid the three Cs due to the corona wreck, has been revived after a long time. The phoenix drawn on the Karamon gate is digitally revived using not only the gate but also the floor surface, announcing the arrival of autumn.
Furthermore, as a real x metaverse interlocking experience, we have prepared a collaborative project “Virtual Ikebana” by artist Ryotaro Muramatsu and Ikenobo, the next master of flower arrangement. In the real exhibition, Mr. Ikenobo’s installation of real ikebana and digital art will be reflected, and in the metaverse, the ikebana that you want to arrange at the venue will be reflected.
