Large-scale projection mapping at this World Heritage site

Venue: Tomioka Silk Mill When: Oct 6th - Oct 15th 2023

Established in 1872, Gunma's Tomioka Silk Mill attained World Heritage status in 2014. The mill played a pivotal role in Japan's silk industry and technological progress, and serves as a reminder of the country's swift modernization during the late 19th century.

A special event taking place at the mill also focuses on modernization, combining stunning projection mapping displays at the historic venue. The NAKED Night Stroll™ – World Heritage Tomioka Silk Mill is set to include a giant 45 meter wide projection mapping show featuring displays of all four seasons. Attendees can also rent NAKED Distance Lanterns® for 500 JPY, and effectively become part of the art installation themselves.
