Tenki no Ko Ten / Weathering with You Exhibit
Shinkai Makoto’s latest hit, Weathering With You (天気の子), has made it into Matsuya Ginza‘s fancy gallery space on the 8th floor! Come by Tenki no Ko Ten / Weathering with You Exhibit for beautiful spreads of artwork, clips of the movie, making-of drafts, character art, and more.
The exhibit is also coming to Fukuoka (12/26-1/6/2020) and Osaka (4/29/2020-5/11/2020)!
All the feels from the movie at the Weathering with You Exhibit
I went on a Sunday. It was pretty crazy crowded, which shows how popular the movie is in Japan!
Summed up briefly, the exhibit is all about the art and story of the movie. If you’ve seen it and loved it as I have, you’ll probably enjoy the exhibit as well! You’re not allowed to take photos inside (which is why mine are of the exterior and photo spots only) but it’s worth it to be immersed in the world of Weathering with You. There are no English explanations, but there’s plenty of visuals to ogle at. It’s organized in a way so that it shows the character concept art in the beginning, then slowly progresses through the story with art drafts, storyboards, and massive artwork spreads.
Oh, and perhaps everything’s a spoiler if you haven’t seen it yet. So go see it first!
