Tokyo Big Sight
“Many people on the way home from exhibitions held at the Big Sight stop walking and look up to see the gigantic projection mapping. Hopes are that projection mapping will become a new attraction in the Ariake District to provide greater fun to people who visit the area and liven up the entire Tokyo Waterfront City.”
Yutaka Yamamoto (Section Manager, Tokyo Big Sight Inc.)
A landmark of the Tokyo Bay Area, Tokyo Big Sight is Japan's largest international exhibition center.
From October 2014, huge projection mapping on the exterior walls of the Big Sight Conference Tower started for the purpose of revitalizing its vicinity, the Ariake District, also known as Tokyo Waterfront City. This projection mapping is playing a major role in enlivening the waterfront area.

The Tokyo Metropolitan Government Bureau of Port and Harbor has taken the initiative to promote the revitalization of Tokyo Waterfront City. The Ariake District, where Tokyo Big Sight is located, is also a target area of the plan. In view of this, Tokyo Big Sight decided to conduct projection mapping on the walls of the Big Sight Conference Tower in accordance with a concept that aims to make this waterfront area an international base of tourism. This projection mapping started in October 2014 to take part in the revitalization of Tokyo Waterfront City.

The availability of projection mapping content is still limited, but Tokyo Big Sight plans to select design themes and increase the content. "Only content produced in-house is used at the present, but we are considering the possibility of having exhibition hosting organizations to create projection mapping content for limited-time showing," according to Mr. Yamamoto. The Media Center for the 2020 Tokyo Olympic and Paralympic Games is scheduled to be set up at Tokyo Big Sight. In 2020, huge projection mapping at Tokyo Big Sight will create a lively Olympic atmosphere.
