About the artwork

This artist has been involved in Tsumari since 2000, and began to think about creating a work using the whole landscape of the area. The “Tour de Tsumari,” initially planned as a cycling race, was held as a bicycle tour because of traffic problems. This decision turned out to be a fortuitous one. Most of the participants said they would like to participate next time, in spite of the steep mountain roads in hilly Tsumari.
