Hikaru Utada: "PINK BLOOD" EXHIBITION
For a limited time, the costumes and set as well as high-quality prints of never-before-seen artist photos from the "PINK BLOOD" music video will be on exhibit at Ginza Sony Park. A specially installed photo booth will also be introduced.
Hikaru Utada's "PINK BLOOD" has been a hot topic as the theme song for the popular anime To Your Eternity, now broadcasting on NHK E (the original manga by Yoshitoki Oima is being serialized in Weekly Shonen Magazine). Distribution of the digital single began on June 2 (Wed), and the music video that premiered on YouTube the same day has already garnered many rave reviews.
The Hikaru Utada: "PINK BLOOD" EXHIBITION celebrating the release of the "PINK BLOOD" song and music video will be held at Ginza Sony Park starting on June 3 (Thurs). Visitors can also experience immersing themselves in a reproduction of the world of the music video at Ginza Sony Park, where the pre-demolition frame of the Sony Building remains.
Duration：2021.6.5 - 6.18
