We also hold the Ginza Tsukiji Market, a collection of delicious items from all over Japan, and live artists. Period: Saturday, April 20, 2019-Friday, May 24
Ginza Sony Park (Ginza Sony Park) is an experimental park located in the urban area for a limited period of time until the fall of 2020, and carries out programs such as various hands-on events and live performances that surprise and playful feelings can be felt throughout the year. You are
The seventh of the experimental program, which will be held from April 20 (Saturday), is a chef (Ryourito) who presides over the food creative team "eatrip" and is a collaborator who works with Yuri Nomura, who runs restaurant eatrip in Harajuku, Tokyo. In the middle of the city, we will hold a program '# 007 eatrip city creatures', a program to grow food using the water from the underground of Ginza, the voices of the visitors, the sounds of the city, and the music played as nutrients.
As we proceeded with the concept of “parks in the city” for a limited period of time in rebuilding the Sony Building, we found that there were a lot of spring water coming out of Ginza's basement. The sea was once spread around Ginza until the Edo period, and the area around the Sukiya Bridge intersection where Ginza Sony Park is was also a moat filled with water until the middle of Showa. By its remnants, groundwater still flows around the area.
There is a resource called "water" necessary for food to grow in the city of Ginza.
In this program, "# 007 eatrip city creatures", we focused on the groundwater in Ginza and created a water field on the underground floor. Using the spring water flowing under the Ginza Sony Park, we grow food while listening to the voices of guests and the sound of live performances. Various talk events and workshops will be held, including live performances by musicians UA, BIGYUKI and U-zhaan.
In addition, around Ginza, Tsukiji is also a town where food gathers from the whole country. During the period, the Ginza Tsukiji Market, which sells delicious food items from all over Japan selected by eatrip, will also appear weekly.
Everyone is welcome to participate in this program, which fosters food with groundwater and people's voices and music flowing into Ginza.
■ Yuri Nomura profile <br /> Food creative team "eatrip" presiding director / cook (Ryuribito). To the way of cooking under the influence of my mother who had opened a hospitality class for many years. Based on the cuisine that represents the four seasons of Japan and the heart that treats guests, we will connect and spread people, places and things from various angles through food based on food. The first documentary film "eatrip," which is the first director's film, was released in 2009 and is now on DVD. His books include "eatlip gift", "Saturday, Summer, Autumn, Winter, and Delicious" and "Tokyo eatrip". The latest book "TASTY OF LIFE" will be published in May.
■ Comments from Yuri Nomura <br /> I think a lot.
"What is the current food?"
As a person who lives in Tokyo and lives cooking as a living,
As one person's question,
Maybe, the more you do the work of cooking, so always
I would like to throw it to a lot of people.
And such a feeling, the movie "eatrip" I made 10 years ago,
It is connected to the event "beat on food-inner eatrip" that I did two years ago.
When I received this story,
I heard that there is underground water in Ginza and it continues to flow under the Ginza Sony Park.
The city of consumption has resources!
Of the soil, water and air necessary for food to grow,
"Water" was in the city of Ginza.
So, this time, in "eatrip city creatures", I thought about "a foundation to make food" centering on "water".
Like the small Tsukiji Market, a lot of food born and raised all over the country gathers, and at the same time it produces and nurtures food.
Foods grown in Ginza Sony Park grow from the ground water of Ginza and the voices of people and the sounds of the city as nutrients.
The visitors are "consumers" and everyone is also a "producer".
Food is a very important act involving all people.
For about a month, through the various events, exhibits and spaces that take place here,
I hope that it will be a place to think about the future food while feeling the water of Ginza and the energy possessed by people.

About the Ginza Sony Park Project
It is a project to renew the former Sony Building, which has continued since 1966, after two phases. In the first phase, we will further expand the public space (Sony Square) next to the Sony Building entrance, which has continued as the Ginza garden since its establishment, and open the Ginza Sony Park for a limited period until the fall of 2020. In the second phase, we plan to complete a new Sony Building in 2022, a new concept that extends the Ginza Sony Park Park concept to the upper and lower floors.
