On May 31, 2021, KONMASA, a contemporary artist from ‘Arimatsu’ in Nagoya, a town of tie-dyeing, open KONMASA Building that will include a café and art gallery under the concept of ‘tradition’ × ‘contemporary art.’ The entire building will provide a space and an opportunity to experience where visitors can enjoy both ‘tradition’ and ‘contemporary art’ and learn from the past.
Arimatsu is well known as a tie-dyeing area with the largest number of tie-dyeing techniques in the world and has been designated to be a national traditional craft as ‘Arimatsu-Narumi Shibori.’ Besides, the townscape of Arimatsu, which was depicted by Hiroshige Utagawa in his Fifty-three Stages of the Tokaido, still maintains buildings that look as if they had been built in the Edo period on the street stretching about 800 meters. In 2016, Arimatsu was selected as an Important Preservation District for Groups of Traditional Buildings by the Japanese government, attracting attention as a new tourist spot.
