A three-day event taking place in Aichi Prefecture brings the beauty of projection mapping to Okazaki Castle, which was the birthplace of Tokugawa Ieyasu (the founder and first shōgun of the Tokugawa Shogunate of Japan) and also features on the list of Japan's Top 100 Castles.
The projection mapping displays also have a historical tie-in, incorporating digital art content related to Okazaki City's culture and traditions such as the famous Mikawa fireworks.
The projection mapping runs from 18:00 to 21:00 during the event dates, with approximately 7 minutes of content followed by 5 minutes of intermission played continuously.
Okazaki Castle is located under 10 minutes on foot from Okazaki Koen Mae Station, which is served by the Meitetsu Nagoya Line.
For those who opt to drive, take the Okazaki IC from the Tomei Expressway. The castle grounds are approximately a 10 minute drive from there, and paid on-site parking is available.
