audiences in the Bird's Eye View TheaterThe Bird's-Eye View Theater designed by the GOTO INC for the World Expo '85 at Tsukuba, Japan is a dome-shaped structure with an 11-meter radius. In the Bird's-Eye View Theater, the world's unique film format is projected onto a 22-meter hemispheroid screen. The screen is concave and measures 17 meters in diameter. The audiences stand on a platform 11 meters above the screen, and look down to watch the passing images. The difference between the experience of viewing the world from the vantage point of a bird and watching a film at a conventional cinema is the feeling that you don't merely watch a film - you feel as if you were a bird, looking down at how our world would look like.

The Bird's-Eye View Theater is now equipped with new digital projectors, which solves the problems of limited film source. Also, a state-of-the-art digital sound system completes the immersion effect. The Bird's-Eye View Theater makes you see movies in a new light!

Admission to the Bird's-Eye View Theater is included in the ticket to our galleries. For more information, please visit our Admission Fees page.

An Aerial Tour of Guishan Island

Guishan Island, also known as Turtle Island, is located 10 kilometers east of Touchen Town coastline. It is a volcanic island located in the Pacific Ocean, named for its similarity to a floating turtle. With its small size of an area of 2.85 square kilometers, and the highest point reaches 401 meters above sea level, there are steep cliffs, active hot springs, hills and peaks, erosion caves, lakes, cold springs, rare cliff vegetation and a rich ocean ecology in the island. Plus, with the erosion of ocean water and the rise and fall of the tide, Guishan Island is indeed a beautiful gem in the ocean!

An Aerial Tour of Guishan Island’, shot in a 4K and equipped with aerial and underwater photography, invites you to experience the spectacular beauty of the island in a unique and exciting way! Come along on an aerial journey around this magical area of Yilan and enjoy a view that was only for the birds. To serve international visitors, we offer the English and Japanese versions, but reservations are required.

 

Earth from Space

The film is edited out of selected photos and related captions published by NASA. It illustrates some amazing Earth features and processes, including some of the most beautiful sights our planet has to offer, volcano eruptions, hurricanes and other examples of nature's fury. The film allows audiences to take the best views of Earth from space.

 

Evolution of the Moon

Did the moon always look like it does now? Not really! 'Evolution of the Moon' released by the NASA Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter team takes the viewers through the evolutionary history of the moon in stunning detail, reveals how it came to appear the way it does today, and gives viewers a guided tour of prominent locations on the moon's surface.
