2. Flowers by Naked (Nihonbashi) – Flowers by NAKED  is an art exhibition which incorporates digital projection mapping with sound, smell and touch. Enjoy viewing the flower art, traditional Japanese motifs, listening to music and enjoying the various floral scents. A fantastic spot to experience the earliest cherry blossoms in Tokyo. As you enter walk through a beautiful array of floral arrangements, various scents, music and digital book. Little O`s favorite spots were the interactive wall that opened doors to beautiful Japanese motifs, crossing the sakura lake where each footstep exposed koi swimming underneath the sakura, and digital shows. This weekend there is a workshop on Aroma Blending – Feb 23 & 24th. More Details –>
