About VR gallery

“VR gallery Art/Space” is a virtual reality (VR) app where users can experience exhibitions through smartphone, with no need of a VR head-mount display.
( App Controls  Starting Guide )

In “VR gallery Art/Space,” users can zoom in or rotate exhibits 360°, allowing users to examine the exhibits’ fine craftsmanship, including the rear side.

By using “VR gallery Art/Space,” users can view the exhibits from various angles, as if in your hand, whenever and wherever through the internet.

In Japan, there are numerous artistic items that deserve to be seen not only domestically but worldwide. Those items contain wide fields including fine arts, traditional handicrafts, not-widely-known collections, and finely crafted industrial products. We hope we can create opportunities for such masterly crafted items to be recognized and enjoyed all over Japan and worldwide.
