Experience Japan’s earliest hanami flower-viewing at interactive art exhibition “FLOWERS by NAKED 2018 -Rondo-” in Nihonbashi
NAKED have unveiled that they will hold a thematic and immersive flower art exhibition titled FLOWERS by NAKED 2018 -Rondo- which will run next year from January 23rd to February 26th.
The show is held every year at Nihonbashi Mitsui Hall alongside the slogan “Japan’s earliest flower-viewing is at Nihonbashi”
2018 will mark the 3rd run of the annual New Year’s springtime exhibition and it’s looking to be bigger than ever. The total number of people that have attended up to now is over 250,000, and there are more than 47,000 Instagram hashtags (as of December 1, 2017) talking about the event.
Next year’s event promises to be even bigger and better, with 10 new interactive experiences and displays.
A flower world of unprecedented beauty – flower art created by attendees
A concept taken under wing by NAKED for the event is “finding a secret garden in the city.” This garden will amalgamate fresh flower arrangements, artificial flowers, projecting mapping, objet d’art, sensing art, music, scent and more to produce an enjoyable and unique experience that stimulates all 5 senses.
“FLOWERS by NAKED” in 2018 takes the best contents from previous years that focus on appreciation and revamps them to get people more involved. You will feel like a protagonist in a movie as you find yourself lost in a wondrous world of flowers and use technology to bloom your very own flower art.
Popular brand LANVIN en Bleu have collaborated with the event to produce their own art fun. You can enjoy creating your own personal flower art by taking photos of flowers around the exhibition and holding them out to a white flower object onto which the photo’s colours will be transmitted. The flower will sway and change colour.
There will even be a great photo spot decorated with bloomed spring flowers. There are 10 interactive activities planned for attendees to enjoy.
Enjoy a city-only flower-viewing experience with some sake among the flower art, musical performances and dances
The entertainment side of things are also receiving a fine update, with 2018’s theme centered around “rondo.” Dancers dressed as springtime spirits will dance right in front of you and there will be a violin performance every 10 minutes. You can look forward to watching the dancing spirits on an interactive flower bed stage.
Indulge in some cherry blossom wine coolers courtesy of popular Yoyogi-Uehara based restaurant “9STORIES” and alcoholic cocktails designed with flower beds in mind. Luxuriate in a range of original flower themed drinks and Japanese sake while giving rein to an early spring.
Experience a special ‘hanami’ (flower-viewing) only possible in the city at “FLOWERS by NAKED 2018.”
