Just when you’re beginning to long for spring but it’s still shivery and damp and gray outside…Flowers By Naked arrives! The projection-mapping environment group Naked is staging its annual flower-themed extravaganza again for the whole month of February, so hop on over there and get a dose of spring fever.
The annual Naked production has gotten a little pricey and it’s not as sophisticated or technically boggling as TeamLab’s Borderless, but it’s a charming and entertaining show nevertheless, and always worth a look.
Open: Every day from January 30 – March 1
Address: Coredo Nihonbashi Mitsui Hall, 2-2-1 Nihombashi Muromachi
Admission: Adult: ¥1800 on weekdays, ¥2200 on Sat, Sun & holidays; Children: ¥1200

Writing mystery books set in Tokyo is mostly what I do, but I also blog about the odd stuff I see every day in Japan. I'm a graduate of Stanford University and the Sendagaya Japanese Institute in Tokyo, and a member of the International Thriller Writers, the Mystery Writers of America, and Sisters In Crime. When I'm not in Tokyo, I live in San Francisco. I also host a travel site called The Tokyo Guide I Wish I'd Had, so if you're headed to Japan and want to check out the places I take my friends when they're in town, take a look!
