“Otawamure” is a Japanese word meaning “to play around, to fool around or toy with”.
This VR experience provides a virtual space where you can feel “otawamure” yourself while playing with gentle objects.
There are three activities inside. In one of them, you’ll find yourself carefully cutting eggs using a string, trying to slice them just right. Another will give you a hand fan to blow a set of quirky objects away.And in the last one, you will have to catch the jiggly, bouncy puddings dropping from the sky.
None of these experiences has a specific goal or objective, but we hope they can help you experience “otawamure”.
