VR program "Edo Castle And the history of Ueno Park"

Edo Castle And the history of Ueno Park
The Edo Era spanned from the 17th to the 19th Century, during which 15 generations of the Tokugawa family ruled over a period of over 250 years. Edo Castle, which was the home of the Shogun and the epicenter of the Tokugawa Shogunate, is recreated using virtual reality technology. In the second part, we look back at the landscape of Ueno Park, which began as the perimeter area of Kan'eiji Temple, the Shogun's place of Buddhist worship, based on images from the Edo, Meiji and Taisho Eras.
