TAKEDA LIFE THEATER


Overview

TAKEDA LIFE THEATER is a free public theater that opened on April 17, 2019 at Takeda Global Headquarters in Nihonbashi, an area of Tokyo known as “the town of medicine” since Japan’s Edo period. The experiential theater is based on the concept of a journey of discovery inside the human body. Visitors are offered the opportunity to learn about the mysteries of life and the human body, with a particular focus on the importance of health, providing inspiration to improve their lifestyles. Equipped with a state-of-the-art 10-meter wide LED monitor and a 5.1 channel surround sound system, the theater delivers compelling, thought-provoking video content produced in 4K. With Japanese and English versions shown consecutively, the theater can be enjoyed by both Japanese-speaking audiences and visitors from overseas.
