Event Content
Drawing Aquarium

teamLab created this truly unique experience for children to expand their creativity. Children color in pieces of paper, making their own designs of fish, that are then scanned. The fish swim out into a giant aquarium display alongside with the fish drawn by other children. Similar shaped fish swim in schools, and when you approach the aquarium, it is possible to ’feed’ them.

The Team Lab Camera

At teamLab Camera, a camera detects the presence of the visitors standing in front of it. It will then take a photo and automatically alter the image.

NHK Television Drama

“Washoku” is registered on the UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage list. As the flagbearer, "sushi" is tremendously popular in the Philippines. A sushi chef from Japan will conduct workshops on how to make sushi.


Street food stalls like those seen in Japanese local festivals will be recreated in the Philippines. We’ll show off the best of Japan, with Japanese foods like okonomiyaki and takoyaki as well as sweets like cotton candy.

It will commence in the Philippines, the anglophone country positioned in the centre of Asia, then spread through the rest of the world.
