Concept

法隆寺には風が吹く。
飛鳥時代から変わらぬ風が。

遣隋使を派遣し、
律令の制定や
外交に力を入れた聖徳太子も、
日本に新しい風を取り入れた。

地震や病で多くの命を失った令和に
雄美で過酷な自然に包まれ、生きること。

たゆたえども沈まず、
風に抱かれ生きること。

風の声に耳をすませ、
亡き人を偲び、
未来を祈る。

The Wind

The wind blows in Horyuji.
A wind that has not changed since the Asuka period.

Even Prince Shotoku,
who sent envoys to Sui Dynasty China
to establish institutions and promote diplomacy,
introduced a new wind to Japan.

To live within majestic and harsh nature in this era,
when many lives were lost to earthquakes and diseases.

To live being embraced by wind.
Swaying in the wind, but never sinking.

Listening to the voice of the wind,
remembering the departed, and praying for the future.

ABOUT“Horyuji”

法隆寺の写真
法隆寺の仏像の写真
Horyuji temple, known as containing the oldest wooden structures in the world, was founded by Emperor Suiko and Prince Shotoku around the year 607. It was completely destroyed in a fire in 670, according to the ancient Chronicles of Japan, “Nihon Shoki”. Reconstruction began quickly, and by the early 8th century at the latest, the central temple was restored in the style of the Asuka period (550-710). Over time, the temple grounds expanded to become the current Western Precinct, “Saiin Garan”. Horyuji temple was registered as Japan’s first UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1993, and the buildings and numerous Buddhist statues and treasures were designated national treasures and important cultural properties.

  • Tohoku Youth Orchestra

    Orchestra

    Led by the artist Ryuichi Sakamoto, an idea came up for The Tohoku Youth Orchestra for an activity “School Music Revival” for the students affected by the Great East Japan Earthquake in 2011. Sakamoto then wished to make music with the children there and organized the orchestra in 2013. Students of primary, junior high, high schools and universities of three prefectures (Iwate, Miyagi, Fukushima) damaged by the earthquake are mainly taking parts of the orchestra. This platform is not only to perform music but also presents them a “field to grow” by learning from talented musicians and interact with others to get a global perspective. We are convinced that the children will give strength to the community and to the Tohoku area as a whole and bring us a bright future. “There are many things that only music can express. Music can express what words cannot. We wish to impress many people through music. ”Strong and beautiful music born by overcoming the disaster will take off from Tohoku to the world.
