August 08 and 09 - Amawaka Art Project

Picture source: Asahi Art Festival

Now flooded under the waters of a reservoir, it is one evening, once a year, that the lights of the village Amawaka are visible again.

The dam and reservoir are accessible by public transport, however, it is rather inconvenient (Hiyoshi station (日吉) on the JR Sagano line, then proceeding by bus). Thus, the organizers provide a bus trip from Nijo Station in Kyoto.

Fare: 1000 Yen (includes also a catalogue of event)

Reservation is required by August 6. Send an email to with the following personal details: Name (氏名), mobile phone number(携帯番号), and mobile mail address (携帯メール).

The project is supported by the Asahi Art Festival network.

Sometimes, the weekly plans may be too short term… Events that require reservations or more planning will therefore be filed under upcoming.
