End of the Museum—12 Stations
Station 12: Marugo Ichiba Market
Dying and the Extension of Life

Marugo Ichiba Market, opened more than a century ago in 1918, was struck by the Great Hanshin-Awaji Earthquake on January 17, 1995, but fortunately it was closed for the day and escaped the subsequent fires, surviving and becoming known as the “miracle market.” Awaiting visitors here at the final station are the elderly inhabitants of the digital world who came into being at the 1st station. On the final day of TRANS-, the proliferation of ghostly presences will fuse into a single entity.
