Of the 10 million annual visitors to Meiji Shrine, 70 percent are visitors from overseas. We are developing multilingual descriptions, captions and audio guides to assist visitors from all over the world in enjoying not only all the planned special exhibitions and events, but the whole of Meiji Shrine itself, including its many buildings listed as important cultural assets.

To help increase visitors enjoyment as well as supporting innovation and new business models for the world of culture and art, we will be trialling a new AI speech-recognition audio guide service, AI NAVI Tenshin.

Audio/visual Guide [AI NAVI Tenshin] is available for download from the QR code. The guide connects to the GPS in your phone. Ask it simple questions such as: “What is this?”, Who is the Artist?”, “How do I do this?”, “Where is the bathroom?” etc, and the guide will provide the information asked for, or guide you to the nearest place from your current location.

The AI Navi Tenshin QR codes can be found on the signs at the three entrances to Meiji Jingu (Harajuku, Yoyogi and Sangubashi), and at the Forest Terrace, as well as on the signs for the outdoor sculptures, and leaflets.

AI Navi Tenshin is developed by a consortium of multiple IT Venture and contents development companies. The speech-recognition and GPS software was developed by Co-graph, Inc. (Shinagawaku, Tokyo. CEO Yoshitaka Mori), the universal design user interface was designed by Nomura Inc. (Minatoku Tokyo. CEO Shuji Enomoto), and the ticketing system was developed by Etix Data Farm, Inc. (Minatoku, Tokyo. CEO Eiji Harada).
