Yokohama Dockyard Garden Projection Mapping
Looking for an unforgettable, mind-blowing experience that's absolutely free? Visit Yokohama's Dockyard Garden and take part in their 3D projection mapping events that take place every night at scheduled times on a seasonal basis.
One of their most popular shows, entitled "ピカチュウ (Pikachu) Nice to Meet You", runs during the summer, coinciding with the "Pokémon Month" events that went on in Minatomirai: http://www.deepjapan.org/a/3339
Currently, a Star Wars themed show is bringing in the crowds! http://www.yokohama-landmark.jp/web/pickup/special/13dockyard_pm/starwars/top.html
You can check out their calendar and show times at their website (Japanese only): http://www.yokohama-landmark.jp/web/pickup/special/13dockyard_pm/top.html
Dockyard Garden is located in the Yokohama Landmark Tower, a 296-meter high record-setting building. Free tickets are available at the entrance of "Sky Garden" on the third floor of the tower starting at 10:00.
