NTT East to Host a 20th Anniversary Project Digital × Hokusai Prologue– The Truth of 170 Years Seen through Advanced Technology

NTT East to Host a 20th Anniversary Project Digital × Hokusai Prologue– The Truth of 170 Years Seen through Advanced Technology


As part of NTT East’s 20th anniversary celebration, a special exhibition event “Digital X Hokusai” will be held at NTT Inter Communication Center.
The roots of this event came from the realization that, as the chance of earthquakes or abnormal weather events increases, our cultural assets are at risk of disappearing. There is a growing need to prepare higher quality digital archives of local cultural works of art.
In addition, this exhibition is also an experimental demonstration, which will serve as a model for future digital museums that will use high-definition prints and applications such as 4K and VR, and which will use high-speed, high-capacity data networks to store ultra high-definition archive data.
This exhibition is intended not only to promote the creation of a digital archive of cultural works of art. It is also a step forward in using ICT in cultural arts to convey a new appeal of these cultural properties, which will contribute to region revitalization and economic activity, as well as new education and research uses.

“Nobunagako Koyo Matsuri” is the meaning of Oda Nobunaga autumn leaves festival.
Gourmet events, taiko playing, warrior matrix, firing of matchlock, will be held the like.

Oda Nobunaga (織田 信長 About this sound Oda Nobunaga (help·info), June 23, 1534 – June 21, 1582) was a powerful samurai daimyo and warlord of Japan in the late 16th century who initiated the unification of Japan near the end of the Warring States period. He lived a life of continuous military conquest, eventually conquering a third of Japan before his death in a 1582 coup. His successors were Toyotomi Hideyoshi, a loyal Oda supporter who would become the first man to unify all of Japan and was thus the first ruler of the whole country since the Ōnin War, and later Tokugawa Ieyasu, who would consolidate his rule under a shogunate, which ruled Japan until the Meiji Restoration in 1868.

Paris at the end of the century

Paris at the end of the century


The Montmarte entertainment district, with its opulent nightly shows and the spinning vanes of the Moulin Rouge; new technologies and cultural assets from around the globe, displayed at the world’s fairs (expositions universelles); colorful posters decorating the streets of Paris—The Industrial Revolution and modern urbanization had transformed daily life, and Parisians lauded the age as the Belle Époque (the beautiful age). But while some of them were drunk on prosperity, others felt anxious about prospects for the future. Then, even as advances in scientific technology explained phenomena that had been shrouded in mystery, certain artists appeared, and their interest was in the inner, unseen world. Here we present works of Alphonse Mucha and his contemporaries active in the Paris of the fin de siècle, a complex world that cannot be understood from just one perspective. We are also pleased to present posters from the beginning of the 20th century, with fresh designs distinguishing them from the Art Nouveau works that decorated late 19th century Paris.
