A large multi-level art centre that opened in Akihabara in March 2010, 3331 Arts Chiyoda occupies the site of the old Rensei Junior High School. In addition to housing galleries and exhibition spaces – and opening the old schoolyard as a public park – the facility also makes use of the school roof and gymnasium and has various year-round workshops and events slated to go off. The name ‘3331’ comes from a play on the old Edo custom called ‘Edo Ippon Jime’, whereby a person would shout ‘Iyo-o!’ and clap their hands 3 times, followed by another 3 claps, and the another 3 claps before finally ending with a single clap.
