Star Wars Visions

The Star Wars Visions exhibit at the Sky Gallery at the Roppongi Hills Observation Deck which is 52 floors up which also makes it a bit special, was one of the things on my must see list while in Tokyo.

It certainly didn’t disappoint in any way with props and costumes from the films as well as lots of Star Wars inspired art in all different mediums from sculptures to paintings all hand picked by George Lucas himself it was a genuine pleasure to see it all.

I managed to take a some photos at the entrance of the exhibit as you weren’t supposed to take any photos. I forgot that about halfway around when I came across a stunning statue of Darth Maul and took my camera out and took a shoot almost at the same time someone came over and politely asked me to stop which I did,  I did say sorry as I genualy forgot as I was in full geek mood and a huge Star Wars fan I then made sure my camera was put away for the rest of the exhibition.
