Yoro Art Picnic（2018） ~ Overview in English ~
Yoro Falls is a famous waterfall with over 1300 years of history and Yoro Tenmei Hantenchi (Site of Reversible Destiny) is one of the holy places of modern art.
This is the second year of the new event created in Yoro Park that includes these two scenic sites.
In consideration of findings over the past year, we will nimbly take another step forward this year.
The event takes place on the lawn area and along a steam. Many booths will line the pathways and bustling events will be held.
You may be absorbed by walking around and working up a sweat or you may be captivated with fun and surprise.
Sometimes, you may be reminded of someone or you may be thrilled by a new discovery.
While enjoying the autumn wind blowing through the vivid autumn leaves, we connect the past with the present and our lives with our health, and by so doing, we step forward towards the future.
Yes, this is the beginning of our adventure.
Join us at the Yoro Art Picnic. It is only held for two days, but you cannot find it anywhere else.
