  • Internationally renowned media artists Hiroaki Umeda and NONOTAK will use Motoise Kono Shrine, the most sacred and highest-ranked shrine in the history of the region, as their stage, recreating the origin of Amanohashidate by way of a “Path of Light” and “Sea of Light.”
  • Exhibit “JIKU” features Nariaiji Temple, one of Japan’s 33 Western Pilgrimage Temples set to beautiful lights. The fall foliage will be in full-effect on this mountain temple overlooking the Sea of Japan, which will be highlighted with a special staging by Seiichi Saito, the executive of the internationally acclaimed, Rhizomatiks By connecting Nariaiji Temple and Chionji Tempe (separated by the 3.6km land bridge of Amanohashidate) with light, Seiichi captures the creation of Amanohashidate, a legend born of light.
