Time Machine of Everyone,by Everyone, For Everyone.

1964 is the year of the first TOKYO Olympic Games, and is also the starting point of“Today's Tokyo”

marked by the metropolis' major construction projects including the metropolitan expressway network.

Shibuya has long been collecting energy from all over the country and creating something new.

Now, heading towards the Tokyo Olympic Games 2020, the city has begun to collect energy from all over the world.

From Shibuya, 1964 TOKYO VR begins.

About 1964 TOKYO VR

From the old photos sitting in your closets or stored in corporate archives,

we create three-dimensional date using photogrammetry technique.

Every photo collected, from as many supporters as possible, 

will be used to recreate “The Cityscape in Memory” with the latest technology.

1964 SHIBUYA VR and 1964 TOKYO VR projects are about to begin.

For “Everyone”to Make Together

1964 TOKYO VR expands with the help of:

“Everyone” who used to live and/or work there at the time sharing the photos and memories,

“Everyone” who share our vision supporting the project, and

“Everyone” who has acquired new skills and techniques creating “The Cityscape Back Then”

Photos Wanted

“1964 TOKYO VR” Showcase

Using the photos taken in 1964,

the digital reproduction of the cityscape is now in progress.

The more photos we collect, the clearer the city image will be.

We are looking for photos of Shibuya taken 10 years before

1964 and 10 years after (i.e. between 1954 and 1974).

“The City in Memory” Emerging from Photos

The photo collected will be used for three-dimensionalization

of the city using photogrammetry technique.

Photogrammetry is a technique of taking multiple photos with different angles

to create three-dimensional models,and the more photos we collect,

the better the 3DCG quality.

1964 TOKYO VR is a Time Machine of Everyone, by Everyone, For Everyone.
