Contents to spread the charm of the Tohoku region
「The View from TOHOKU & NIIGATA」

This original work of TOHOKU HOUSE was produced by WOW who was born in Sendai and is active around the world. Images with the theme of "the four seasons", such as the natural scenery of Tohoku and Niigata and summer festival images that make full use of motion graphics (CG), will be screened on a huge 180-degree panoramic screen. This is the first ambitious work to challenge the technologies by mounting a 360-degree camera on a large drone to shoot landscapes and synthesizing (stitching) multiple images into 180-degree images.
*To find out where the filmed locations are, please refer to the list of filmed locations further down the page.
