Share

In celebration of 130 years of official diplomatic relations, Japan and Thailand have created a virtual reality (VR) street museum.

The VR street museum is set up in the Japanese village in Ayutthaya province, in the exhibition hall next to the Chao Phraya River. By using an immersive VR theatre complete with the latest VR Scope technology, visitors can enjoy a full 360-degree view of the historic Japanese village in Ayutthaya. The experiential showcase will provide historic information about Ayutthaya, the Japanese village and the role it played along with history on the international fabric of society during the peak of the Ayutthaya period.

Through the Street Museum’s technology, visitors can scan a QR code with their handheld devices; such as, smartphones and tablets to enjoy the vast landscape of the Japanese Village both today and from the 17th century through virtual reality on their screens, with audio guides available in three languages: Thai, Japanese and English.
