Echigo-Tsumari: Gift for Frozen VillageArt and Cultural Treasures
- Tokamachi, Niigata Prefecture
- February–March, 2020
The village of Tokamachi, buried under deep snow, is the stage for this project which celebrates the natural beauty of this area. Attractions include the “Hikari no tane” light display—a fantasy “flower garden of light”—set in the rice paddies that are so typical of rural Japan. Local food is available at outdoor stalls, and there are star mine fireworks set to musical accompaniment.
