This year marks 400 years since Asano Nagaakira (the first head of the Asano clan and lord of the Hiroshima Domain) assumed control of Hiroshima Castle. As part of a variety of events that are being held to commemorate this landmark in and outside the city, we present a small exhibit and workshop by Kanae Ohgi and Kaoru Hirano. The female artists’ inspiration was derived from the castle’s nickname, “Carp Castle.”

Hours: 10:00-17:00 (Last admission 16:30)
