To celebrate the restoration of Nagoya Castle’s Hommaru Palace and its opening to the public, an event titled NIGHT CASTLE OWARI EDO FANTASIA is set to run from December 1 to 16, an immersive night walk that will have people strolling around the castle grounds when the sun goes down. The planning, production and performances are all developed by NAKED.
NAKED are a creative company who use projection mapping and installations to further draw out the historical and architectural beauty of certain locations. This has included the UNESCO-recognised World Heritage Site Nijō Castle, Hirado Castle in Nagasaki Prefecture and more.
NAKED are set to attach new value to Nagoya Castle with their immersive night walk which will showcase the phantasmagorical beauty that falls on the castle when the sun goes down.
The whole of the castle grounds will be met with lights and music. Dazzling images will be shone onto the outside wall of the eastern side of Hommaru Palace, and fantastic projection mapping will recreate the sights of Owari Province.
