1. Overview
Eiichi Shibusawa, whose portrait will be on the new 10,000 yen bill to be issued from July 3rd, is a proud businessman of Japan, known as the “father of modern Japanese economy,” and a great local figure born in Saitama Prefecture. NTT East filmed the interior of Shibusawa’s birthplace, the former Shibusawa residence, Naka-Nchi, in Fukaya City, and based on the footage, digitized (3D) the structure. We have created content that allows you to experience VR using technology. In this corner, just by putting on VR goggles, you can experience what it feels like to actually enter a mansion in Fukaya City, as well as a 3D experience using the touch panel display.
We will be exhibiting in this corner with the aim of having local people learn about Eiichi Shibusawa while having fun using digital means and rediscovering the charm of Saitama.
