ENGEKI QUEST

“ENGEKI QUEST” is a flaneur-style walking project to explore a city. The participants wander the city alone, relying on the instructions written in the “Adventure Book”. It has been created in Yokohama, Kinosaki, Manila, Düsseldorf, Ansan, Hong Kong, Tokyo, and Bangkok.

This project, which is not only a game but also an art, will bring a new perspective to the participants and try to drill holes in “invisible walls” which divide people.
