Each CRAFT SAKE WEEK at ROPPONGI HILLS has a different concept, and the venue space created by a leading Japanese architect is one of the great attractions of the event.

In 2023, the theme will be “Masu = Mass”!

The installation will be designed by Paris-based architect Tsuyoshi Tane of ATTA – Atelier Tsuyoshi Tane Architects. To express the wealth of culture and craftsmanship produced from Japan’s natural environment, he has chosen the concept of “Mass = Masu”, and will use approximately 3,000 “Masu” (a wooden box-shaped vessel, which can hold one square measure of rice, that has been used since ancient times), so that an overwhelming volume of Masu will envelop visitors, while the soft wood and lighting will bring to a sense of abundance to the event space.
