What will Tokyo have to say?


Hello Lamp Post is a playful system that invites the people of Tokyo to strike up conversations with familiar street furniture using the messaging function of their mobile phones. Share your memories of the city and uncover the stories that other people leave behind, whether it’s with the iconic Tokyo Tower or Roppongi crossing.

Hello Lamp Post will launch in Tokyo on 25 April 2015 at Roppongi Art Night – a one-night, all-night event celebrating art in the everyday.
