I was able to #BOnTop of getting a first look at the new installation, which includes the work of artist groups including NOIRFLUX, StoryLab and more. The new digital experience features five activations where art and tech intersect with Japanese culture and tradition.

Nothing screams "spring is here" more in D.C. than the sight of cherry blossoms! As soon as you walk into the main gallery, Sakura Yume, you'll experience a floating environment where koi fish and blossom petals react to your presence and movement.

Koi Pie is an incredible interactive 3D sculpture where koi fish interact with your movement in the pond.

While taking in the art, you can experience even more digital magic through augmented reality, which is featured in the ARTECHOUSE app. ARTECHOUSE also offers the first-ever augmented reality cocktail bar in the United States. (The bar operates daily during evening hours).

While browsing, don't forget to walk through the narrow, lantern-lit "street" that responds to your footsteps. It's super cool!

One of the best features in the new installation is the opportunity to try a unique immersive dining experience. Bloom, takes place weekly on Thursday, Friday and Saturday during the first evening session at 5:30 p.m. Diners will be able to enjoy a bento-box meal enhanced through interactive table projections and sound elements that change throughout the meal.
