Moon Art Night Shimokita will feature several installations, including ones by international artists who will exhibit in Japan for the first time. A total of 56 local stores and facilities will participate in the festival, offering originally-designed stamp rallies and limited menu items created in collaboration with “Metaani,” a popular 3D Japanese avatar. The festival is made to enhance Shimokitazawa’s as a hub of creativity and community engagement, through co-creation and collaborations between artists and local businesses. Visitors will be able to rediscover the charm of Shimokitazawa’s area by touring the neighborhood through exhibitions and giant public art installations, and participate in a special stamp rally of digital artworks and NFTs that can only be obtained on-site at the festival.
