At the actual experience venue, you can enter with an umbrella and feel the rain falling only in the Metaverse space. Furthermore, through the “mirror screen” that connects the metaverse space and real space, you will have the mysterious experience of seeing your avatar face to face with your real self. What kind of sensations will be evoked in those who experience this new metaverse art that combines visual, auditory, and tactile senses? *No reservation is required. Come and have a new experience. ◆Planning and development
