5 Ways Tokyo Fuses Art and Technology to Charm Visitors

October 1, 2020 Visit North Asia No Comments Email Email

Whilst Art and Technology are terms often associated with Japan’s capital, rarely are the two mentioned in the same breath. Proving its commitment to cutting-edge innovation, Japan’s capital is continuing to reshape the future of travel with a range of smart tools and initiatives creating a stronger-than-ever link between Art and Technology. From virtual art museums to music-filled neighbourhood tours and tech-savvy lifestyle hotels, here are some great examples of how visitors can benefit from Tokyo’s unrivalled talent of merging the two:

Get Lost in the World’s First Digital Art Museum, teamLab Borderless: True to its name, the 3D digital art here is borderless, flowing seamlessly from one exhibition room to the next. The museum is covered in intense, vivid patterns and designs, creating an artistic, ever-evolving world. Lose yourself in an endless field of lanterns that flicker by human movement, or wander through a vibrantly coloured, mysterious garden. This place lets you dive right into a limitless world of lights and colours. Learn more

Visit a Japanese Art Museum in the Cloud: The virtual IJC Museum in the Cloud, presented by All Nippon Airways (ANA), allows visitors to enjoy modern artworks by Japan’s representative artists. Thanks to 3D artworks, you can view the works from all directions with 360° freedom and get so close that you can see the subtlest details and even feel the presence of the artists.

Go on a Music-Filled Tour of Shibuya: Thanks to the recently launched SoundMap Shibuya, it is now possible to explore the charm of this prominent Tokyo neighbourhood with maps, sounds and AR – even from abroad. Users can display a map from a remote location and take a walk around Meiji Jingu while experiencing voice guidance for each spot. Beyond Tokyo is another recently launched VR travel experience, allowing you to explore Shibuya differently. An immersive experience using photos, 360 videos, and the art of interactive storytelling to let you explore the hustle and bustle of the famous Shibuya Crossing, a local restaurant, “fishing” in Shibuya, fashion culture, and more.

Be Part of Japan’s next Revolution at Haneda Innovation City: Tokyo’s Haneda Airport is being transformed into Haneda Innovation City, a new innovation hub set to become the premier destination for travellers to experience gourmet dining, traditional Japanese culture and arts, and relax with fun activities like music concerts. Haneda Innovation City will also house cutting-edge medical research facilities, business offices, and provide a hydrogen charging station. Its grand opening is planned for 2022. Learn more

Check into a Tech-Savvy Design Hotel: Aloft Tokyo Ginza is the newest addition in a wave of next-generation lifestyle hotels and the first Aloft in Japan that combines accommodations, art, music and technology. Centrally located in Ginza, Tokyo’s upscale entertainment, shopping and dining district, the 16-storey hotel is home to 206 modern loft-like guestrooms that feature keyless entry – guests are able to use their smartphone or Apple watch as a room key.
