Light art objects using “Mino washi”, which has an amazing 1,300-year history, are to be lighted and showcased on the Udatsu-lined old streets. They will provide pleasure and comfort to people who see them. Please don’t miss it! http://www.mino-city.jp/en/tourist/festival13.html
Our exhibition in September will center on the art works, which could recall moon viewing
