What we do

TOKYO Smart Culture Project

This project will create an environment where anyone can enjoy arts and culture anytime, anywhere through an integrated push towards the development of an information and communication infrastructure at metropolitan cultural facilities, the usage of their collections through means such as data base expansion, the planning and development of programs leveraging digital technology, the creation of new ways to experience and enjoy arts and culture utilizing cutting-edge technology, and more.

Events Information

Enhancement of Digital Archives

We will promote the construction of a system enabling online availability of collection-related material from six metropolitan museums (Edo-Tokyo Museum, Edo-Tokyo Open Air Architectural Museum, Tokyo Metropolitan Art Museum, Tokyo Metropolitan Teien Art Museum, Tokyo Photographic Art Museum, and Museum of Contemporary Art Tokyo) as well as the expansion of public access to this material. We will operate Tokyo Museum Collection (ToMuCo), a database enabling cross-searches of material and works in these collections. In addition, we will digitize collection material and valuable resources, and make their 3D data available online.

Development of New Programs Utilizing ICT

We will plan and develop new programs that actively utilize ICT, based on development of the information environment and the construction of digital archives. In addition to developing and introducing the Edo-Tokyo Museum smartphone interactive app “Hyper Edohaku”, an Edo-Tokyo Open Air Architectural Museum app “Tatemonoen Navi” and other such initiatives, we will engage in proof-of-concept trials for new ways to enjoy XR technology-driven content from permanent exhibitions.
