DINO-A-LIVE dinosaurs certified as the candidate of “Our National Treasues : 150 Years in the Future”!

At the “Our National Treasues : 150 Years in the Future” held at the Tokyo National Museum in January 2023, dinosaurs from DINO-A-LIVE were recognized as candidates for future national treasures. Our representatives Kanemaru and Kozuka were appointed as official ambassadors of the Tokyo National Museum. This connection made this miraculous collaboration “Tokyo National Museum x DINO-A-LIVE” possible!

Do you know “The Night Parade of One Hundred Demons (Hyakki Yakou)”?

“Hyakki Yakou” has been a popular theme depicted in picture scrolls and paintings in various forms since ancient times in Japan.It portrays a grand procession of yokai (strange apparitions) and demons unfolding in the dead of night.
This event, “Grand Dinosaur Night Parade,” is a new night parade of dinosaurs inspired by this “Hyakki Yakou”

In Case of Rain or Strong Wind

In the event of rain or strong winds, the event may be held as a "Grand Dinosaur Night Parade: Rainy Weather, Strong Wind Version" with modified content.
The parade originally planned in the courtyard during fair weather will not be held, and instead, the dinosaurs will be "actively exhibited" under the eaves of the Asian Gallery (Toyokan).
Experience dinosaurs moving as if alive in a walkthrough format.

In Case of Cancellation of the Event

Due to their structural nature, dinosaurs find it difficult to walk in rain or wind. Therefore, in the event of inclement weather such as strong winds or rain, there is a possibility that the operation of the dinosaurs may be affected, and the event may unavoidably be canceled.
Additionally, the event may be held with limitations on the number and types of dinosaurs.
Please kindly understand this in advance and we appreciate your purchase of tickets and participation.
Announcements regarding arrangements will be made on the dedicated website and Instagram.
