①Team Lab’s Kochi Castle Festival of Light（17:45-19:15）
Kochi Castle, the symbol of Kochi, is used as part of the art project “Digitized City” created by Team Lab, and is only available for about 2 months from November 8, 2019 to January 13, 2020. The castle grounds are covered in immersive light and video as an interactive art space. “Digitized City” is a project that uses non-material digital technology to “change the city into art as it is” without physically changing the city. This was the second time following last year where 112,174 people visited in 46 days last year.
After enjoying the festival of light at Kochi Castle, it is dinner time at Hirome Market. "Hirome Market" is a space like a food village where about 40 Japanese, Western, and Chinese restaurants and about 20 souvenir shops and souvenir vendors gather. You can pick and choose what interests you. We recommend tasting Kochi’s famous seared skipjack tuna rare and sprinkled with salt and garlic slices. Definitely don’t miss this chance to try the local food unique to Kochi.
