SANUKI ReMIX in Kagawa Prefecture
Enjoy the wonderland of Sanuki artisanship
Shikoku District Transport Bureau
SANUKI ReMIX is an “Artisan Fest” that introduces craftspeople who are leaders in the traditional arts and crafts of Kagawa Prefecture, which was formerly the province of Sanuki. The festival highlights their culture, skills, and aspirations. This unique “human resources (artisan)-based” project—neither “art-based” nor “traditional craft-based”―is held every fall in Takamatsu City.
Takamatsu is already known for creating its own traditional culture and industries. The aim of this project is to make the city a center of new added value in artisanship, co-created by traditional Sanuki artisans and those who support local craft industries on the one hand, and artists and other creators from around the world on the other.
Takamatsu and the surrounding Sanuki region has long been a place where traditional craftsmanship flourishes, and crafts such as lacquerware, paper lanterns, and bonsai have been handed down through many generations. In 1969, the world-famous sculptor Isamu Noguchi established a studio in Takamatsu, and many tourists come to view his works here to this day.
SANUKI ReMIX holds exhibitions where you can experience the skills and aspirations of local artisans firsthand, as well as workshop tours and talks that will give you deeper insight into the essence of their crafts.
