Bunkamura Kaleidoscope Exhibition 2018

The largest Kaleidoscope exhibition in Tokyo features unique and artisanal kaleidoscopes on display and for sale at Tokyu’s flagship store. The fascinating and novel objects might be more familiar as a humble plastic children’s toy but many artists and craftspeople also create handmade and bespoke kaleidoscopes. The mirrored tubes contain small pieces of cut glass, paper or other materials that create captivating and hypnotizing patterns as the object is rotated. If you want a treat for your eyes then swing by to take a look!

There are also a series of workshops running during the exhibition period where you can make your very own one-of-a-kind kaleidoscopic creation under the guidance of experts (advance booking required).
