In celebration of Time Out Tokyo’s 20th issue, we have collaborated with Seibu Shibuya to put together the interactive exhibition 'Tokyo Creative x Time Out Tokyo: Discover Tokyo with Seibu Shibuya', featuring all 20 of our quarterly magazine covers. Take a close look at our inaugural issue, which was published back in November 2013, and make your way through five years’ worth of covers, right up to our latest issue for Autumn (Oct-Dec) 2018.
Aside from the inaugural issue, all of Time Out Tokyo’s impactful covers are born of a successful collaboration between our international editorial team and the reputable art director Steve Nakamura. Steve is widely known as the creative mind behind 15-plus CD jackets of world-famous Japanese pop icon Kyary Pamyu Pamyu.
Walk through the engaging construction site-inspired exhibition space featuring safety cones, signposts, barricades and LED lights directing you to the different zones. Within this unique setting, the exhibition adopts a hands-on approach as you’re able to recreate your own Time Out Tokyo magazine cover using quirky props. Also, find out how it feels like to crawl onto a bed in a capsule hotel, sample fine sake, and uncover more great Tokyo experiences. Don’t forget to pick up a copy of our latest map ‘30 ways to uncover Tokyo with Seibu Shibuya’, which will bring you to some of the city’s top experiences. Before you leave the exhibition (on the seventh floor of Seibu Shibuya Bldg A), make sure to pass by the large window display on the first floor to gaze at supersized cover images of our magazine, which are on display between September 11 and October 8.
That’s not all: for its 30th anniversary, Tokyo-based radio station J-Wave (81.3 FM) will be collaborating with Time Out Tokyo and Seibu Sogo for a special broadcast to reveal the hottest venues in the city. Tune in on September 17, 6pm-8.55pm, or click here for the podcast.
