Tokyo Tower City Light Fantasia
18 November 2016 – 23 April 2017
If Tokyo Skytree reigns as the world’s tallest tower today, Tokyo Tower still maintains its elegant allure inspired by Eiffel Tower. It is a great place to feel your presence in the Japanese capital, high in the sky. And that in a more relaxed manner compared to the now overcrowded, younger, taller cousin.
This winter, Tokyo Tower is set in a futuristic cityscape entitled “Tokyo Tower City Light Fantasia”. The creative team NAKED Inc. converted the Main Observatory (150m high) into a fantastic theatre, merging Tokyo’s real view and future sight into a symphony of sound and light. For the third edition, six interactive contents are being presented in the Fantasia.

◆ Mapping-photo Spots
Two trompe-l’ œil photo spots are set up for your selfies with a three-dimensional Tokyo Tower projected on the floor.
◆ FUTURE LOOK DOWN
One of the tower’s thrilling attractions is the “Look-down Window”, a glass floor of the Main Observatory. A vista of future city is cast onto the real view of Tokyo captured through the transparent floor glass.
◆ Future City Walk-through
The reality and the future merge into one. The night view of Roppongi and Shinjuku, seen from the lower window panes, is real, while the one reflected on the upper panes is an image of “Tokyo 20XX”. Projected on the floor is a future panorama with Tokyo Tower and skyscrapers.
◆ AR Night View
In the direction of Shiodome (in the northeast of Tokyo Tower), adore the spectacle of night views, the real one and the augmented reality version with Tokyo’s glittering skyscrapers, created by 4K monitors.
◆ Tokyo Time Travel
Like to feel the history? Take a look at the upper window panes in the direction of Tokyo Bay. The projected landscape moves from the past to the present, letting you travel through time from the Edo period to today. Perhaps with an odd sensation, as the lower windows offer the current view of Tokyo in real life.
◆ Mapping Night View Guide
On the northern side windows (facing Toranomon and the Imperial Palace), try identify Tokyo’s high-rises with the help of “Mapping Night View Guide”. Just like in a sci-fi novel or a Hollywood movie scene, comparing them with the actual buildings seen outside.
