This time, Jirka Weine San who participates from Nakagawa-mura,Nagano Prefecture with the carpet of the hair of the goat says as follows recently about the fox.
The fox is watching and seeing the future in the disorder of the world. And saying the god Inari, too, is so, but there is an allegory of the coyote in the world of the Native American and it is watching and seeing the condition of the earth of us.
Then, he is cremating a fox with the pottery (the earthenware) to have begun for
some time past

The road of Kaimei --
Using historical buildings and gardens which were restored in Yanagimachi neighborhood of the Saga City, on the Nagasaki Road, it was planned and aimed at recompiling the climate of Saga which left as the place in " Kaimei ", the season, history and a culture once more in the " day after tomorrow "
By the exhibition with twice per year, it does the counting of the 10th this time which began 5 years before.
Saga produced a wide range of human resources in the period from Bakumatsu to the Meiji Restoration, in the "Kaimei" spirits.
Nagasaki, the starting point of the Nagasaki Road, had alternating current with the islands in the South East Asia such as Ayutthaya, Batavia, Malaka, Riyuukiyuu in the great navigation era and it led more to India and Rome, too.
On the other hand, the road from South which was landed from Nagasaki was the way of connecting with the southwest and northeastern area on Japan, Edo via Setouchi and Kyoto and its vicinity via Saga and Kokura.

Also, when attempting to think from the viewpoint of the local geography -- the climate, Saga is the Chikugo-river basin and the Ariake-kai coastal region which originates in the northern part of the Kyushu-mountain.
The movement that would recognize to be belated but to want to reconsider the lost article of the economic growth on Japan again formerly in bubble phenomenon of the Japanese economy had started.
The historic, cultural buildings in many places of Japan were disappearing, but the intention to let's stop this trend was a way of thinking of the Saga city.
However the way of thinking must not just be the point of view of "the rebirth of the building".
They were built from Meiji to the early stages of Showa, such as old Koga Bank, old Koga House, old Sansho Bank, old Ushijima House and old Fukuda House at the Nagasaki Road, Yanagimachi neighborhood and they were utilized.
In the change of the times, it lost the social feature but valuably as the cultural heritage, it is the one to want to tell in the coming ages.
Therefore, the plan of the contents how it uses in the future even if it makes this a cultural asset and it does rebirth and preserving isn't good to be as insufficient.
It thought that the viewpoint was necessary how it utilizes the cultural heritage of the Saga City people for the future of society and era.

Reconsider the era, the society, the basis of the life culture and the culture of Japan which existed in the former days when these cultural heritages existed.
Do the work study of the implement using the fire and water.
Explore an idea of the way of conquering the condition of the safety of the food and the gastronomic culture and the crisis where the natural environment which surrounds us encounters.
For "The road of Kaimei" project after the second, we are gathering the following ideas.
1. Being intelligent on the natural material. (the skill and the culture of being material)  The lecture and workshop on being material of the natural dyeing and weaving material of Monsoon Asia such as silk, linen and cotton.
Making the natural material and the Japanese cotton.
About some of planning contents which concern strongly in the concept this time.

2. The forum on the natural food material, the safety of the food and the gastronomic culture in Japan.
The dinner party, the tasting and so on.

3. The environment civil engineering for making the area environment being natural. -- The natural circulation of the earth, water and air on the topsoil.

On the stage of the Nagasaki Road which is "a road" of Kaimei, we consider the world of the life culture of cloth in the viewpoint of the connection with the South East Asia which was cultivated by the climate of the same Monsoon Asia.
As the gastronomic culture, we re-find the rice and bean. We introduce the taste of the food of the South East Asia and the taste of the road-side restaurant and arrange them as the one of today and we OLD & NEW them.

The origin of the earth is the origin of us --.
The foxes yelping and the malted rice plumping, being the earth peaceful.
The fox are seeing the future of the earth.

We will live in the origin of the earth primarily.
The origin of the earth is the origin of mine.

For the origin of the earth.
Satoyama is our home town.
