It’s a Sony

11:00am – 7:00pm
Free

The Sony Building in Ginza will turn 50 in March, and to celebrate the occasion it will be demolished. But before it goes, you can enjoy a special exhibit about the company’s past, present, and future.

Part 1 (Nov. 12-Feb. 12) is a display of some of the most famous products in Sony’s 70-year history, including your old favorites like the Walkman, robot-dog Aibo, and the first color TV, Chromatron, as well as original ad posters.

Part 2 (Feb. 17-Mar. 31) hypes up the Sony Park that will replace the building with a special installation about “Park of the future”, featuring the work of various artists. A music event and special event on the final day are also planned. Special goods will also be available, including a collaboration with The Parking Ginza.

To prevent the spread of COVID-19, many events have been canceled. Always check official sites before heading to an event.
