 Hama-rikyu Gardens

Event / Program Overview

An event was held at Hamarikyu Gardens, an inner-city oasis of Tokyo. This event featured a perfect fusion of technology and nature through stunning light shows and performances of ambient music by foreign and domestic artists. Guests were able to immerse themselves in an extraordinary experience combining Japanese nature, music and light.

Approximately 500 people participated at this event. Guests were able to enjoy ambient music and stunning illuminations while strolling around the gardens. The event recalled the times of Tokugawa shogunate, when Hama-rikyu Gardens had been used as an entertainment venue. (The 22nd Japan Media Arts Festival Sponsorship Project)

At the climax of the event, smoke combined with the illuminations. Added to the gentle and mysterious tones of ambient music, the atmosphere of the space became yet more fantastic.

Participants of the event enjoyed experiencing this Japanese garden filled with light and music; an atmosphere completely different from the more mundane appearance of Hama-rikyu Gardens during general opening hours.
