A look at the upcoming collaboration between Evangelion and the Tokyo Skytree tower
As announced since October, the collaboration between the Neon Genesis Evangelion franchise and the tallest tower in Japan, the Tokyo Skytree, will begin on December 23. The collaboration will be titled “EVANGELION Tokyo Skytree Project” and will be taking place at the highest point, called “Tembo Deck”.
Within the space known as "Tembo Galleria", 450 meters above the city, a large number of places will be established to take pictures with different scenarios, such as a huge head of Unit EVA-01, corridors with phrases from the series in the franchise's official font and even the core of an Angel being stabbed by a Progressive Knife.
The “EVANGELION Tokyo Skytree Project” collaboration will also see exclusive and limited-edition merchandise at the “Skytree Café,” with an original menu based on the franchise. Tokyo Skytree itself will be lit up in the franchise's colors, and the collaboration is part of a celebration for the release of the film Evangelion 3.0 + 1.0: Thrice Upon A Time, set for January 23, 2021 in Japan.
Finally, the “EVANGELION Tokyo Skytree” project will be held at the Tokyo Skytree between December 23, 2020 and March 31, 2021, and more information will be revealed soon.
