Match Box Tokyo Meeting Point Suggestions.. どなたかオススメの場所はありますか?

December 10th, 2017


(English below)

繋がる、創る、共に創り出す;ポップアプポイントと、クリエイティブワークショップの場所 どなたかオススメの場所はありますか?



CONNECT CREATE COLLABORATE: Locations for Pop Up Delivery Points and Creative Workshops? Can you suggest one?

Our Pop Up Delivery Points are held at places recommended by our local participants. To date they have ranged from parks, cafes, galleries, museums, restaurants and community centres to people’s homes, apartment rooftops, private members clubs, empty shopfronts and at public events and festivals - all of which have been free of charge to access or generously donated. If you know of a great location for a Pop Up that we can utilise for a couple of hours, or even a day or two during our stay, please let us know. Our Pop Ups take up a table or two in each venue. Depending on the place and size, we generally bring 1-10 Time Capsules from around the world with us to share with everyone. We often sit around a long table or a few tables where participants can share their matchboxes with each-other and/or create their boxes. Often locals visiting the venue at the time are curious and they also join in and create their own magical boxes on the spot.  The project is very inviting and celebrates inclusivity and diversity and there is always lots of love in the room!

If you would like to recommend a place contact us.

“Relaxing electronically” by Andrew

Andrew has turned a very old low capacity thumbdrive into a little person wearing a little hat and impish grin, reclining. This is to capture the impact of technology that is a huge part of the citys culture and life right now, as well as its whimsy - its deep commitment to fun and creative events and oddity.

“Bedroom Window” by Jonathon

Two elements Jonathon sees every day from his apartment are The Castro rainbow flag - for inclusiveness and tolerance, and Sutro tower - a 3 sided radio tower very well visible in San Francisco often shrouded by fog. Fog has been termed by San Franciscans as Karl the Fog.

Our first Pop Up will be at the amazing Botanical Gardens in Golden Gate Park

9.15am - 10.15am

2nd Piano
No 2 piano is quite near the Main Gate entrance to the Botanical Gardens on 9th ave near Lincoln Way.

Join us to hear one of our matchbox collaborators who we encountered today play the piano at the 2nd Piano. Pick up a matchbox, create one on the spot or deliver one you have already made at the same time.

Everyone: Free entry from 7.30-9am

San Francisco Residents: Always free. Show them your ID at the front gate or a bill with your name on it to a residential address in San Francisco and you have free entry every day. They do suggest a $2 donation - definitely worth it and highly recommended!

Non SF residents: $8.00/person after 9am or look into getting a yearly membership

We can be contacted on 646-512-0530 or via matchboxprojects[at] But we do not know whether there will be good reception whilst in the park!

After you spend time with us in the park, we recommend you stay and enjoy the amazing Flower Piano events happening within the gardens. 12 days, 12 pianos until 18 July!
