We can't make City Paper without you
Coinciding with peak bloom, the latest ARTECHOUSE digital installation immerses you in the signature beauty of cherry blossoms—without the risk of triggering your allergies. While previous installations have featured abstract geometrical figures that react to patron movements, the latest seasonal dazzler incorporates koi fish and cherry blossom petals that respond to your presence. Walking through the gallery is a world of moonlit floating blossoms. Get even more festive at the bar with augmented reality cocktails, which with the help of an app (and drinks made with Georgian pomace brandy), will send some warmth through your bones. Sakura Yume/Cherry Blossom Dream will also feature an immersive dining experience developed by Storylab, which will enhance your meal with interactive projections and the sounds of the season.
