The Story of the Kingdom of Winter and the Kingdom of Summer
Monday, November 12, 2018 to Tuesday, December 25, 2018
* Central atrium artwork scheduled to be exhibited through late-February 2019
We will host a Christmas promotion entitled “GINZA SIX Christmas 2018 Fantastic Gift: The Kingdom of Winter and the Kingdom of Summer” from Monday, November 12 to Tuesday, December 25. We invite everyone to participate in these Christmas events at GINZA SIX and to exchange thoughts and gifts with the significant persons in their lives throughout the Christmas season.
The iconic atrium at the center of the GINZA SIX building will feature the Shining Elephant, measuring approximately 3 meters high and more than 4 meters long. In the scene from the story reenacted here, little angels called the Putti deliver the Shining Elephant from the Kingdom of Summer to the Kingdom of Winter by drone.
Overall size: 14.3 meters long, 7.7 meters high
Gates to the Kingdom of Summer and Kingdom of Winter will be installed at the front entrances (two locations) facing Ginza Chuo-dori
This monument symbolizes how the story is passed down for innumerable generations. All aspects of the story are represented.
Other works expressing the story will be located throughout the GINZA SIX building to add to the visitors’ enjoyment of this world.
Locations: Various points, including escalators and pillars
Two show windows on the Food Floor (second belowground floor) will feature artwork conveying the message of the story: that compassion for others inspires gift-giving and creates warm bonds between people. These narrative elements will add to the enjoyment of the artwork for gourmets.
In the tableau created here, the ice machine given to the Kingdom of Summer will continually produce popsicles in various flavors. The cold, sweet popsicles create warm feelings and captivate the kingdom’s prince and its people.
Learning about the Kingdom of Summer from the Shining Elephant, the princess of the Kingdom of Winter imagines it as bright, open, and colorful, a vision expressed by sweet and fruity candy.

When visitors download the COCOAR2 app and hold up their smartphones at points throughout the building, the story’s characters come to life and further immerse visitors into the world of this story.
