The digital art medium has been growing in popularity over recent years, and an event taking place at the OtemachI Mitsui Hall will combine the best of this modern art form while incorporating traditional Japanese paintings. Works from five Japanese artists - Hokusai, Hiroshige, Sotatsu, Korin, and Jakuchu - will be displayed on massive digital screens in ultra high definition, allowing visitors to appreciate the brush strokes and textures of these pieces in a completely new way.

Approximately 45 works in total will be showcased digitally at the event, and guests are encouraged to take as many photos as they'd like with the art on display.

Admission to the event is priced at 2000 yen for adults, 1500 yen for college students, and 1000 yen for junior high and high school-aged students. Those over 70 years old, or in elementary school (or younger) receive free admission.

Getting there

The OtemachI Mitsui Hall is directly connected to Otemachi Station (Tokyo Metro Tozai, Hanzomon, Chiyoda, and Marunouchi Lines, and the Toei Mita Subway Line) and can be accessed in just a few minutes on foot.

I'm an expat who has lived abroad for almost a decade, including 7 years in Japan. I've also visited 44 of 47 prefectures and hope to get to the last three someday! I'm particularly fond of exploring off the beaten path destinations, gardens, and tea houses, and have a real interest in Japan's growing vegan scene.

At first, I wondered if the images greatly enlarged would lose something. But the website presentation shows the images are crisp. What a great way to present the images. Selfies, indeed.
