Spaaark!!! A Gymnastic Digital Attraction Pop Up | SAITAMA
July 21, 2017 @ 10:00 - August 20, 2017 @ 16:30￥800
Got to love the obscure names some Japanese event organisers come up with for pop-up events. “Spaaark!!! I am also a creator” with the sub-line “A gymnastic digital attraction” attempts to reveal the type of event this is, but falls drastically short. Basically Spaaark is a type of computer programming event. And a bit like Team Lab Island uses a mix of virtual reality, projection mapping and new edge technology to stimulate young minds, while simultaneously offering physical activity.
For example, “Kagura”, which is named after a type of Shinto dance, uses futuristic technology to create music through dance moves.
Shikumi design offers kids the chance to make their own pictures on tablets. The pictures are then projected onto a screen which the kids can interact with.
“Springing” allows children to use basic and comprehensible computer programming to create and play games and puzzles. There are also four springing workshops to aid children make the most of the programme. They are scheduled for July 22nd and 23rd and August 2nd and 3rd. The workshops cost an additional 1500 yen per child and are limited to children in 3rd grade or higher.
There are also a couple of activities involving photo editing applications and tablet games and activities.
￥500 for adults and ￥800 yen for children aged between three and junior high school age, or you can get an “Oyako” (Parent and child ticket) for 1200 yen. Children two years old or younger have free entry. Tickets will go on sale from July 1st. They can be purchased at Ticket Pia (P Code 991-059), Lawson Ticket (L Code 32484) and E+.
Toiro of Saitama Super Arena (map in grey details box at bottom of post). 3 minute walk from Saitama Shintoshin station.
