GINA SONY PARK (Gina Sony Park) has a preview of Sony Park Exhibition KYOTO to be held at two venues in Kyoto from November 11.
Sony Park is a facility that was opened as a renewal project that utilizes the site of Sony Bill (Gina, Tokyo). Various events and live performances have been held since the opening in August 2018 as an experimental park, but it was closed for rebuilding at the end of September 2021.

In addition to the actual PlayStation aircraft exhibitions, voice content that introduced games and trivia with memories and episodes by Okazaki Physical Education was prepared.
