COSMIC WONDER with Kogei Punks Sha
Exhibit “Kamino-hikarino-awa Water Ceremony”

Jul 24, 2015 | EVENT 


Photography by Yurie Nagashima


Under an April sky, the water ceremony Kamino-hikarino-awa was performed by Cosmic Wonder with Kogei Punks Sha.

Visitors were invited to drink the spring water welling up from the foot of the mountain.

Deep inside a forest of Japanese cedar, the story of a natural journey was told in words and quiet gestures.

Our thoughts were calmed by the rustling sounds of paper.

Mountaintops shimmered in bowls of water and wild sakura petals drifted down through the air.
