Projection Mapping at Canal City

Canal City Hakata is tricking out its fountain show! From late November, the many customers who visit Canal City every year, including foreign tourists, can enjoy projection mapping and colorful LED lights. Fukuoka Jisho is installing 3D projection mapping equipment which will project images (roughly 20 m by 65 m) onto the wall of the Grand Hyatt Hotel. They are considering using images that reflect Japanese culture (such as Japanese characters). They will also install LED lights at the nozzles of the fountains. The work will cost around ¥1.5 billion. Construction will begin on Aug. 16. During construction, the fountains will not be in operation. Source: Fukuoka Jisho press release, 6/17
