Dialog in the Dark is the Social Entertainment of Darkness

Visitors are led by visually-impaired guides in small groups through specially designed darkened rooms. Scent, sounds, wind, temperature and textures convey the characteristics of daily environments for example a park, a city or a bar. In this process, the experience reminds visitors of potential of a variety of senses, the importance of communication and its comfort.

Dialogue in the Dark, which was founded by a doctor of philosophy
Andreas Heinecke in 1988, Germany, has been presented in 41 countries throughout the world and more than 8 million visitors have gone through an experience in the Dark. The first exhibition in Japan was held in November, 1999. Approximately 200,000 visitors have already experienced the DID Japan until now.

This is not simply a mock experience of the world of the visually impaired. Rather, I believe people can make new discoveries by sharpening their other senses in environments where there is no visual information,
says Shinsuke Shimura, CEO of Dialog in the Dark, Japan.

Since it is not possible to use one s visual sense, one has to activate entirely new resources, instincts and unused potential to reach a set goal: Darkness accelerates, amplifies and anchors learning processes. As the experiential learning workshops which raise awareness while having fun, more than 500 companies adopted this experience of darkness in aiming at, for example, Effective Communication , Teambuilding , Innovation Ability , Leadership and Diversity Promotion .
