Ginza NFT Gallery's "Tokyo NFT Art Caravan" Kicks off in Ikebukuro, Tokyo!

Updated: Aug 3, 2023


Introducing NFT Art in Ikebukuro's East Side, a Gathering Spot for Subcultures


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 goal of this project is to highlight the charm of the works presented in the Ginza NFT Gallery, as well as the exciting new experience of enjoying them in 3D/AR, by introducing a selection of these pieces via outdoor displays along the Yamanote Line.


Starting today, 18th July, a new video exhibition has begun in the eastern area of Ikebukuro, which is increasingly popular as a hub for subcultures like anime and manga.


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.
