it’s what’s on the inside that counts.

it’s what’s on the inside that counts.

A government that administers a population the same size as Canada's, confined to three buildings covering an area of one city block by two city blocks. When I've gone there for my international drivers license renewal, the entire process takes about 20 minutes. Stunning efficiency there, not like at my bank!

Amazing that this is the main news story.

Sad

Really? It's just more promotion of what Japan CAN do, and selling it to the world.

Very cool and stunning!

The record number of international tourists will be blown away by these jaw-dropping projections. Expect them to trend on social media!

Matsumoto Castle had projection mapping recently. It was pretty cool.

I would warn everyone that modern cameras saturate colours to an extreme level, so do not expect to see colours as vivid as the photos here. It was noticeable at the castle how different it looked to the naked eye to a smartphone screen. It was still cool, but photos give a false representation of it.

Very cool! I can imagine that this would be a great place for something like this!

Is my tax money paying for this?

Ten years ago, it cost more than 80 million Yen to illuminate and map Himeji Castle for a few weeks, including content creation, rental of equipment, staff and power.

How much will this extravanaga cost over one year?

Cool, a free show.

Good for tourism. Not so for the taxpayer.

Some ego going on because this is a government building.

Huh? How is providing entertainment not good for the taxpayer?

Something tells me you don't realize the overwhelming majority of tourists in Japan are Japanese - who pay the taxes...

How about projecting the faces of the politicians that get caught taking bribes or are involved in the political funds scandal?

I remember after the Tohoku Earthquake 2011, they pushed for all of us to save electricity even though western Japan wasn't even on the same electricity grid as eastern Japan.

They shut down many escalators and many other things that were electric all over Japan for over a year and some even more.

How quickly they forget (nor really cared).

This looks impressive. I'd go there to see it. Like the Eiffel Tower, you have to see it with your own eyes to appreciate it.
