Panel exhibition "Discovery Gallery"

Many photographs of the streets of Omiya in the Showa era will be posted on the huge map that will newly appear in Hikawa no Mori Hiroba. On the map, each visitor can write their own message, such as nostalgic memories of the time and ale to Omiya in the future. We will share the discoveries and awareness of the people who see the exhibition, and reaffirm the lifestyle, landscape, and culture that have been lost from Omiya in the 1960s.
