S2O JAPAN SONGKRAN MUSIC FESTIVAL 2019


S2O SONGKRAN MUSIC FESTIVAL
IS a dance music festival started in 2015 in collaboration with the Songkran water festival that is held in the Thai New Year. World’s top DJs joined in, the tickets sold out successively in its second and third year, 2016 and 2017, the event attracted some 55,000 audience within three days. Now it’s become the largest water and music festival in Asia, enjoying not just local but global popularity.

Songkran
IS the Thai New Year, a period of celebration when the sun ends its twelve-month cycle and moves on to Aries anew. In tradition, people would purify Buddhist statues, stupas, and the hands of senior members of their family during Songkran, but it’s turned into a popular water festival in which passersby enjoy throwing and splashing water each other on the street.

Presently it lasts for three days on 13, 14, and 15 April, the dates designated as Thailand’s national holidays. Though downtown can be rather quiet during this period as people from the country return home all together, various events do take place in Bangkok, especially around the Grand Palace.

In Wat Pho you can see demonstrations of different styles of Songkran celebration of the northeast, the central and the south regions of Thailand. Still more renowned is the tremendous water splashing on Khao San Road, a world-famous backpacker hub.

The 40th Kirishima International Music Festival 2019

The 40th Kirishima International Music Festival 2019


Kirishima International Music Festival was founded under the name of “Kirishima International Music Festival/ Master courses” in 1980.

The outset of the festival was an approach made in 1975 by an educator of Kagoshima to Mr. Gerhard Bosse, first concertmaster of Gewandhaus Orchestra of that time, who was staying in Japan, to hold a master course. The purpose was “to provide students who wish but cannot study abroad with an opportunity to study with and listen to first classed musicians”. The spa resort adjoining a national park, Kirishima highlands were chosen for the festival site, and the philosophy was “to nurture musicians who are independent technically and personally”.

Since the launch of the festival, it has been rooted as tradition that the students who studied at the festival for a few years return to the festival to teach when they have grown to active musicians. Neither admiration-lead nor originated with building of a theatre, the festival which began by citizen’s contribution and musician’s enthusiasm have steadily grown even through the long recession. It was the philosophy of Mr. Bosse “Growth for the whole man supports a musician”and “appreciation of the musicians to the festival which nurtured them”which have supported the growth.

Today, Kirishima International Music Festival enjoys reputation as one of the most important festivals in Asia, for its excellent performance quality, admission-free concerts for expanding audience, and high standard of the increasing students from Japan and abroad.

Last year , Kirishima International Music Festival celebrated the 30th festival. The festival will be known more widely, throughout Japan, Asia and the world. Further development of the festival is anticipated along with reviewing the accumulation of the history.

Walking the hills and valleys of Edo

Walking the hills and valleys of Edo


In recent years, walking around the city with its unique topographical aspects, such as high ground and low ground, slopes and undulating terrain, is often covered on television and in books, and has gradually gained a quiet popularity. We can enjoy a stroll in Tokyo while experiencing different elevations and the special characteristics of Musashino Plateau in the west, the low-lying land lying to the east, rivers such as the Kanda river and Meguro river and the valleys along the traces of the ancient rivers. Ukiyo-e artists such as Utagawa Hiroshige often portrayed the city of Edo with landscape pictures that demonstrated an awareness of these topographical aspects. Although the townscape is now greatly different from the Edo Period, the hills, valleys and slopes remain almost unchanged in present Tokyo. This exhibition focuses on such topographical features of Edo depicted in ukiyo-e. By looking at ukiyo-e and comparing the topographical characteristics of Edo and present Tokyo, we hope that you can feel much closer to the landscapes of Edo.
