Sakura – A Requiem for Hiroshima and Nagasaki

Sakura Poster Sample

This is the year of 70th year anniversary of atomic bomb attack in Hiroshima and Nagasaki. The artist Keiin Yoshimura thinks that it is the responsibility of a Japanese artist to perform on this theme in order to convey the meaninglessness of mass detraction and war. She also thinks that art can heal the wounds from the past.

演目は「さくら」で、今年は広島・長崎の原爆投下から70周年の年であり、アーティスト吉村桂充さんは日本人として戦争と原爆の悲惨さを芸術という方法で 伝え、癒してゆきたいと考えておられます。昨今はそれぞれの歴史解釈に対して目を背ける風潮の強い中、このような舞台は原爆体験国として、大切なことと考えます。

また、現在デリーにて簡単な作業をお手伝い下さるボランティアも募集しています。5日の午後3時頃から本番の終わる9時までお手伝いをして下さる方々を募集しています。詳しい内容についてはメッセージをお送りください。 contact(at)

One of the leading organic tea farmers and a talented tea master in Taiwan Mr Gao Din-Shi’s carved calligraphy boards were delivered in his new tea house at the suburb of Taipei. This tea house was designed by Mr Lin the owner of the renowned Shi-Yang-Shang-Fang restaurant. It was a great honor for me to do this work for this great human being and also in this island where so many calligraphy masters live. Thank you Mr Gao for maintaining the authentic tea culture in Taiwan.
