Joyama Club Vol.13: Spring walk with Kinichi Matsuyama

Fram Kitagawa, the head of Joyama Club invites you to join a walk in Satoyama with local master, Kinichi Matsuyama

posted May 11, 2017

The Joyama Club was launched in 2015 for anyone to join a walk in Joyama (a small hill) behind Matsudai Nohbutai to discover and have closer look of plants, flowers, insects and all the living creatures under the guidance of the local master, Kinichi Matsuyama. It aims to remember and remind ourselves of how Echigo-Tsumari Art Triennale began - to admire and appreciate the nature. The walk will begin from 9:15 in the morning for approximately two hours.
