The exhibition is being held in the Tembo Galleria, 450 meters above the ground. You'll feel the excitement as soon as you enter either of the two "Tembo Shuttle" elevators that will take you to the Galleria.

The elevators are decorated to recreate the insertion of the "entry plug" into an Evangelion, and during the 30-second ascent, riders are presented with famous scenes from the Rebuild of EVANGELION series and imagery that will only heighten your anticipation for the main event.

On the walls of the 110-meter-long Tembo Galleria, you'll be introduced to Evangelion, characters, and quotes from the Rebuild of EVANGELION series. While being immersed in the unique Evangelion font outlining the series' concepts, visitors are invited to venture further into the world of Evangelion.

The turn from the Tembo Galleria into Tembo Galleria Floor 450 has been reimaged as "Tokyo-3," the main setting of the series. There you can take a photo with a life-size version of the Rei Ayanami character.

The Galleria also introduces all four installments of the Rebuild of EVANGELION series, from EVANGELION: 1.0 You Are (Not) Alone, released in 2007 to 2021's EVANGELION: 3.0+1.0 Thrice Upon a Time.

At SKYTREE's highest observation point, "Sorakara Point" – 451.2 meters above ground – there's another photo area with a "progressive knife" piercing a "core." Along the ramp descending from Sorakara Point to the Tembo Shuttle, a diorama featuring figures from the "Kaiyodo EVANGELION Figure World" series depicts famous scenes, further bringing the Evangelion world to life.

For the EVANGELION in TOKYO SKYTREE duration, the tower itself will be lit up with five patterns to match Evangelion Unit-01, Unit-00, Unit-02, Mark.06, and Unit-08. The colors change every 3 minutes, and being able to enjoy the show even after you leave TOKYO SKYTREE only adds to the event's cool factor!

Making full use of the latest technology, TOKYO SKYTREE is dressed in Evangelion colors to celebrate the upcoming movie release. Even if you're not a fan of the anime series, it definitely adds to the event's cool factor, so be sure to check out EVANGELION in TOKYO SKYTREE in winter 2020-2021!
