SXSW JAPAN HOUSE 2016
The skyrocketing speed with which technology continues to advance is fundamentally changing our lives. At JAPAN HOUSE 2016, we plan to focus on future developments such as robots and alternative mobility devices which could enhance the possibilities of humanity. How will technology extend humanity? Will society in the future be a sustainable rose-colored world? Or, will we be confronted with further enigmas and profundity of human nature?
Here at JAPAN HOUSE, we invite you to re-explore with us the eternal mystery of human nature. What constitutes human nature? What form will the extension of humanity take?

Yun*chi to perform for JAPAN HOUSE 2016 at the world’s biggest festival – SXSW!
The program for the upcoming “JAPAN HOUSE 2016” to be held from March 14th～March 15th at the world’s biggest festival and conference event in Austin, Texas “South by Southwest” (SXSW) has finally been announced. Have you ever wanted to feel more connected to your favourite artist? For those who embrace this feeling, and who also love entertainment, what was once a dream is now becoming a reality. This year’s JAPAN HOUSE will see a new kind of contemporary art for live experiences.
J-pop artist Yun*chi will be performing at this year’s JAPAN HOUSE and plans to try something a little different. Her microphone will be equipped with a device made by NTT that will measure her pulse, and this will be visually displayed for everyone to see! The audience will be able to see Yun*chi’s pulse change as she performs, allowing for a whole new kind of live experience. The audience can also join in with this experience by installing their own pulse wave device.
In addition, a set of accessories to be used during the concert, as well as a device that allows you to watch 3D videos from your mobile phone, will be distributed at the event on Tuesday 15th March. You can appreciate Yun*chi projected in 3D in the palm of your hands as you recall the live experience. Attend the event and experience first-hand the future of technology and entertainment!
