Edamitsu Machinaka Art Festival

Asahi Art Festival 2015


Edamitsu machinaka art festival is the place where people have a chance to play and know the shopping market. Edamitsu was once-flourishing on the government controlled Yahata steel work in the early 20th century. In this October, we made an attempt to reconstruct the prosperity here with performers and artists from all over Japan. They showed their works within the town such as a house which used to be a high-class Japanese-style restaurant or shrine. In cooperation with shop representatives, dance companies hold workshops & creations and various artists open a market in the shopping street. 





Edamitsu Machinaka Art Festival Commitee


Established in June 2013. Shop owners, town representatives, artists and young people around the Edamitsu Honmachi Shopping Mall will gather to hold the Edamitsu Machinaka Art Festival. We aim to create opportunities to activate the region by branding the town image as “Edamitsu, a town with full of arts.” We hope that the improved image will draw new residents to the area and attract new shops to vacant stores in the shopping mall.
