NAKED projection mapping show based on Osamu Tezuka’s “Phoenix” opens at Dogo Onsen in Matsuyama, Ehime PrefectureActivity
A projection mapping show based on “Phoenix” by renowned Japanese manga artist Osamu Tezuka is currently on exhibit at the main building of Dogo Onsen (Matsuyama, Ehime Prefecture).
Dogo REBORN Project
It was decided to hold this exhibition, “Dogo Onsen X NAKED MESSAGE-Phoenix Arrival” as a main event of the PR campaign “Dogo REBORN Project”, making use of Dogo Onsen’s main building’s restoration and preservation work.
Visitors to the Dogo Onsen are met by “Phoenix” objets d’art that soar above the main building’s Niyu entrance, along with the sounds and lights of the projection mapping show that presents the history of the Dogo Onsen in the manner of a picture scroll.
With Dogo Onsen’s main building, celebrating 125 years since the Meiji Restoration, as its stage, “PHOENIX: DOGO ONSEN SPECIAL” will tell a new story based on the original “PHOENIX” animation’s travels between the distant past and distant future. (The anime “Phoenix: Dogo Onsen” was created by Tezuka Productions).
Furthermore, as a symbol of the concept of “evolution,” onomatopoeic expressions evolve over time. They appear in even the ancient Kojiki, whereas in recent years Osamu Tezuka was able to utilize onomatopoeia in his own works. This projection mapping project will give birth to new expressions.
“Dogo Onsen X NAKED MESSAGE-Phoenix Arrival”
Exhibition Times: 19:00-21:30 Venue: Dogo Onsen Main Building
