Open ProgramCarp Swim

This year marks 400 years since Asano Nagaakira (the first head of the Asano clan and lord of the Hiroshima Domain) assumed control of Hiroshima Castle. As part of a variety of events that are being held to commemorate this landmark in and outside the city, we present a small exhibit and workshop by Kanae Ohgi and Kaoru Hirano. The female artists’ inspiration was derived from the castle’s nickname, “Carp Castle.”
