Tour 4

“To celebrate the next 500 years, we wanted to create a ‘voyage’ with seven stages and rituals. A journey that projects us into the future, fueled by all our precious, uplifting ‘firsts’:
Crossing a sunlit garden. Opening a surprise parcel. Climbing aboard a small boat and mooring on an island. Seeing extraordinary creatures. Making a wish. Gently touching a statue. Dancing under bright lights…

The journey will begin at the entrance to the Japanese garden, transformed into an Edo-era tsukubaï. Its destination will be an islet in the middle of the nearby pool, where you can leave a wish. A wish, suspended and adding color to the projections into an uncertain future, and expressing our feelings and desires.

At the center of the islet, a small ‘temple’ on the water where lucky visitors and carefree souls will be in for a surprise. We urge you all to write down a wish, right now, a testimony, an idea that we can leave as the legacy for a millennium.”
