It has been announced that the world’s most popular virtual singer Hatsune Miku will perform at Tokyo 150 Years, an event hosted by the city of Tokyo.
“Tokyo 150 Years” is the main event of “Old meets New: Tokyo 150 Years,” an upcoming festival that will take place at Hamarikyu Gardens in Tokyo from October 26 to 28 in celebration of the capital’s name change from Edo to Tokyo and the establishment of the Tokyo Metropolitan Government. Hatsune Miku will perform as part of the event’s main program which is themed on “Tradition & Reform.” There will be a variety of displays showcasing the appeal of Tokyo and its culture.
This program, entitled Koku o Asobu Jikuu no Tabi ~ Hatsune Miku Links Tokyo 150~, will take place at the pond in the garden where Miku will be projected onto a water screen spanning 30 meters wide and 15 meters tall. Projection mapping will also be used on the tea shop that’s situated in the middle of the pond as well as on the trees in the back. Miku will perform popular songs that have been released in the past 150 years while donning fashion from the Meiji, Taisho, Showa and Heisei periods of Japan.
Japanese jazz pianist Masahiko Sato will be in charge of the music who has rearranged Miku’s songs in a jazzy style.
Check out Miku’s trailer for the event below.
Miku will also join hands with Megurine Luka to collaborate and perform with Masahiko Sato again on November 11 at Kawasaki Jazz 2018 with a full concert in Culttz Kawasaki.
Other exciting things to look forward to at Tokyo 150 Years includes getting a full 3D avatar scan of yourself that will dance together with Miku as well as another 3D avatar scan of yourself that will stroll through the streets of Tokyo. You can also take a photo of yourself that will look like you’ve slipped back in time 150 years, and much more.
Get involved with Old meets New: Tokyo 150 Years and see Japanese tradition collide with the latest technology.
