Trick Art Vampire

Photographic fun with ninjas, time travel and giant monsters, all under one roof!

Trick art uses optical illusions, making the viewer feel like they are part of the artwork itself or tricking the mind and changing one’s perspective on the piece. Trick art actually originated in Japan, so a visit here is like stepping into a Mecca of illusion! Riding on the back of a tiger or flying through the sky with ninjas are all possible at Tokyo Trick Art Museum!

For those of you not used to taking snapshots, the museum offers bilingual instructions on how to pose dramatically and the best angle to take the photo from. You can also download the “TRICKAR” app on your smartphone and turn the pictures you take into movies — a whole new way to experience art.

While it’s a museum, it’s also a far cry from the average drab and dower museum experience, making it a must for anyone visiting Odaiba!
