Edamitsu Machinaka Art Festival

Asahi Art Festival 2016


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 Committee


Around Edamitsu Honmachi shopping mall, shop owners, town representatives, artists and young people gathered to hold the Edamitsu Machinaka Art Festival. We aim to create opportunities of regional activation by building a brand that “Edamitsu, the town full of art.” Establishing the image that the town with entertainment, we center on the activities of community development, such as increasing new residents and attracting new shops to vacant stores in the shopping mall. Held the Edamitsu Machinaka Art Festival in 2014 and 2015.
