Concept of EDOROCK・Kawamu
“The beauty and benefits of the river. What you can see by experiencing art.” the river is alive
In Japan, where there are many mountains, rivers are closely related to people’s lives.
The Edo River was also created by the river construction of the Tone River during the Edo period, and transported goods from Edo. The riverbed plays an important role as a river when the water volume is high to protect the area from flood damage.
I am grateful for the beautiful greenery and expansive space of this riverbed, Also, the big vision of this event is to convey its significance and charm to the maximum.
We want to convey that through art.
There should be many things that you can see by experiencing the various philosophies, possibilities, and ways of life of artists through their works.
You can only see the art of “EDOROCK Kawamyu”, which is only possible when there is a riverbed.
In today’s rapidly changing world, we believe that art plays an important role in awakening people’s raison d’être and their original sensibilities.
I would like to make this an event that will leave a lasting impression on you when you experience the works on the riverbed.

A message from art director Akane Fujita
Thanks to the existence of corona, if you notice, different values and lifestyles have become commonplace.
We are now in an era where we can get various information and things without meeting people. The time has come when you can work without going to the office.
However, there are many things that are overflowing with information that make it difficult to see even your own thoughts.
In such a case, I would like you to stop by and spend time quietly talking with your loved ones at “EDOROCK Kawamyu”.
People are equal when it comes to art, music, and nature. Look at it rather than knowledge, feel it, and find your own thoughts, thoughts, and sensibilities that are hidden in dialogue.
Each person has their own way of enjoying EDOROCK Kawamyu.
You can decipher the art in your own way and try to draw sentences, you can have a dialogue with the children about the work, you can move your body to the music, or you can stand in the work on a leisure sheet. , You can take a picture with your favorite person, and of course you are welcome to stare at it alone.
There are as many ways to enjoy it as there are people. I hope that it will be a kind time for everyone to be considerate of everyone. And I hope that such a form will be born in everyone, such as valuing dialogue with others and with yourself.
We will continue our activities with the hope that “EDOROCK Kawamyu” will become such an opportunity.
Whether you come from far or near, we will make sure that you can feel that you had a good time, so please come and visit us.
