If you want to look ahead into the future of technology, TEPIA Advanced Technology Gallery is just the spot for you. Explore the wonders of cutting edge technology, from AI to 3D printing! What’s more, TEPIA is all about getting involved — there are classes, workshops, and other interactive exhibits. These allow you to use brand new tech to create your own mementos and memories.
Spread out across four floors, the permanent exhibitions include several displays of AI, robotics technology, and virtual reality in practical use. You can explore a home controlled through holographic VR remotes or examine how AI changes voices and faces. Afterwards, visit the creative lab and let your imagination free watching the 3D printers, and AI-generated art.
If you reserve in advance, you can also take the opportunity to participate in various workshops. These include the basics of robotics, where you’ll learn to program tasks, as well as a chance to use the 3D printer to create your own objects.

Frequently asked questions
Are there English translations available?
Unfortunately not. While most of the project titles are translated into English, that’s about the limit of it. Staff will try their best to help you, but their English is also limited. However, the activities are very simple, so it’s worth your while even if you struggle with Japanese.
