"Tokyo NFT Art Caravan": Explore NFT Art on Digital Signages Along Tokyo's Central Loop Line!

Updated: Aug 3, 2023


NFT Art to be Showcased on Outdoor Digital Signages along the Tokyo Yamanote Line


Starting from the 19th of June, the Ginza NFT Gallery is implementing a project named "Tokyo NFT Art Caravan via Network Vision". This project features the continuous presentation of NFT Art on large outdoor digital signages along the Tokyo Yamanote Line.

The Tokyo NFT Art Caravan via Network Vision is a collaborative endeavour, made possible with the cooperation of a local outdoor advertising company, using their "PAR Network Vision" platform to broadcast artworks from the Ginza NFT Gallery's open call exhibition.


The Yamanote Line is a central loop line that encircles the heart of Tokyo. The purpose of this initiative is to spotlight the allure of the artworks featured at the Ginza NFT Gallery and the novel experience of enjoying them in 3D/AR, by showcasing select works on digital signages within this "Golden" area along the line. As the character of the areas with the digital signages varies significantly, each location will broadcast imagery crafted with a concept that suits the specific locale. The artworks introduced will also be selected from the shortlisted entries of the Ginza NFT Gallery's open call exhibition, in line with the concept for each location.


At the bottom of each broadcast, an "XPAND Code" will be displayed. By scanning this code with a smartphone, viewers can convert all artworks into AR, bringing them to life in front of the camera, and sticking them wherever they please. You can enjoy a novel NFT Art experience while touring the centre of Tokyo.
