Namie Town, Fukushima Prefecture, is a town that experienced the entire town being evacuated due to the Great East Japan Earthquake. The number of residents who lived there before the earthquake was about 21,000, but now it is about 2,100. In Namie Town, “Namie Art” is an outdoor art project created by “Heralbony”, a welfare experimental company that aims to create a new culture based on welfare, and displays the memories residents want to leave and the town they want to create. The project “Namie’s Memories, Namie’s Future” began in May 2022.
The theme of the art was decided through discussions with the residents of Namie Town, and the theme of the fifth installment, “Memories of Namie,” is a spring tradition that used to attract long lines of people from inside and outside the town. At the festival “Fujihashi Fudoson no Fudoichi,” the theme of “Namie’s Future” was “Pride in our rich food culture.”
In response, an artist from Heralbony created an art piece, which was turned into an art noren curtain and hung at the “haccoba Namie Brewery” in Namie Town on the 28th.

In addition, on the same day, haccoba announced and started sales of a new alcoholic drink “Fuuu!do”, which is decorated with the art “Namie’s Future “Pride in Rich Food Culture,” and Namie gathered for the art unveiling. I behaved to the people of the town.
“Fuuu!do” is a new product made by fermenting whey with rice from a ranch run by the “Tono” (Mr. Yukitane Soma, the 34th head of the Soma family) of the Soma clan, which has ruled this area for a long time. It is an alcoholic beverage with a refreshing sweet and sour taste similar to yogurt and a gorgeous fruity aroma of elderflower. ■About Namie Art Project “Namie’s Memories, Namie’s Future”
By expressing the memories of the town that the residents of Namie want to preserve and the image of the town that they want to realize through outdoor art throughout the town, we will create memories of the town that they want to preserve and the image of the town that they want to realize. This is a project that aims to share.
The theme of the art is determined by interviewing residents about the memories of the town they would like to preserve and the image of the town they would like to see.
The art will be created by artists from Heralbony, whose mission is to “show off your uniqueness.” This represents our desire to make Namie a town where everyone can be themselves and be unique. .

■About art
* -Namie’s Memories-*
Theme: “Fujihashi Fudoson’s Fudo City”
The theme of the 5th art piece, “Namie’s Memories,” was decided upon as “Fujihashi Fudoson’s Fudo City” after discussions among the residents.
“Fujihashi Fudoson” is the guardian deity of Lord Shibeha, who ruled this area, and is worshiped as the guardian deity of fire. The Fudo Market (Fujihashi Fudoson Daisai) is held on January 28th of the lunar calendar, with stalls lined up along the approach to the shrine and within the precincts.It used to be a spring tradition that drew long lines of people from inside and outside the town.
Memories of that lively town are expressed in art that is full of light and color, with letters flying freely and chaotically.

Artist: Taisuke Kinugasa
To live is to draw. He depicts the scenery he sees while traveling around the world with his family, using his unique world view full of light and color. He has a color sense and sensitivity that has been described as magical, and can instantly select a color from hundreds of colors to create a painting. His artwork has received high acclaim both domestically and internationally, and large-scale votive tablets have been dedicated to the votive tablets of Kyoto Kamigoryo Shrine and Kyoto Imperial Palace Hakuun Shrine.

* -Namie’s future-*
Theme: “Namie takes pride in her rich food culture”
The theme of the 5th art series, “Namie’s Future,” is “Pride in our rich food culture.”
A variety of crops are grown in Namie’s beautiful countryside, and the townspeople live their lives eating delicious Namie ingredients and drinking Namie’s delicious water. The town’s restaurants also serve dishes and drinks that make use of Namie’s produce. The people of Namie are proud of their food culture.
The wishes of everyone in the town are expressed through polka dots sprinkled with a variety of colors.

Artist: SATO
Currently enrolled in Boston Special Needs (Boston)
Ever since he discovered watercolor painting at a summer camp when he was 10 years old, his daily routine has been to draw “one picture a day” at home.
. There is no specific model, but he chooses a combination of colors from a palette depending on the image in his mind that day, and fills the large drawing paper with a watery touch reminiscent of jelly beans or raindrops.
I prefer transparent watercolor paints made in the United States to avoid muddying the hues. When someone sees the finished painting and says, “It’s beautiful,” it happily parrots back, “It’s beautiful.” In her spare time, she enjoys saori weaving, playing piano, and dancing in art classes in Boston.

■haccoba About the new product “Fuuu!do”
-sake-
We want to create sake that stands out from Namie Town, Fukushima Prefecture. With this in mind, we created the “Tono” (the 34th lord of the Soma clan) that ruled this area for a long time.
We made alcoholic beverages by fermenting whey from the ranch run by the current owner, Yukitane Soma, along with rice.
In this town, where horse culture is deeply rooted, with events such as the “Soma Nomaoi” festival that has been going on for over 1,000 years, the expression is reminiscent of Mongolia’s “horse milk sake.”
It is characterized by the refreshing sweet and sour taste of yogurt and the gorgeous fruity aroma of elderflower. The flavor is perfect for the upcoming warm season.
-Handkerchief-
This is the second collaboration with Heralbony, and this alcoholic drink features artist SATO.
It embodies Namie’s future as envisioned by Ms. The multicolored polka dots represent “pride in Namie’s rich food culture.”
I would be happy if you could think about the town of Namie and feel even a little bit of its rich climate while drinking this alcoholic beverage.
