Tabegamisama – The Mysterious Restaurant of the Food God
Hidden in an abandoned building on the backstreets of Nihonbashi, you’ll come across this paradise of Japanese cuisine – except it’s not a restaurant; it’s a digital, interactive art exhibition that aims to express the beauty and main elements found within washoku. Although at the very end you do get to sample some typical – and delicious – Japanese food, the main part of this exhibition consists of four spaces that make use of projection mapping, video technology, body mapping, and special effects to represent all that makes local cuisine so unique. Produced by Moment Factory, a Canada-based digital art group, this exhibition aims to educate the audience while entertaining. It’s also an attempt to revive enthusiasm amongst Japanese people for the country’s traditional foods.
Opening hours: Weekdays 10am-9pm, Fridays & Saturdays 10am-11pm, Sundays & national holidays 10am-7pm (last entry one hour prior to closing time)
